Oldest kilns and Judean glass remains in country unearthed near Haifa

The remains of the oldest kilns in Israel, including the rare raw Judean glass they produced, were recently discovered by archeologists from the Antiquities Authority as part of the Jezreel Valley Railway Project in Mount Carmel, near Haifa.

The 1,600-year-old kilns, dating to the Late Roman period, indicate that Israel was one of the foremost centers for glass production in the ancient world, the authority said in a statement on Monday.
