Rare fresco fragments dating back to Roman era discovered at Zippori National Park

A team of archaeologists sponsored by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem uncovered hundreds of fresco fragments in Zippori National Park Wednesday that date back to the second century CE, shortly after the Roman destruction of the second temple.

The fragments include the head of a lion, a horned animal, a bird, a tiger’s hindquarters and more — all of which were discovered in a monumental building located at the end of an ancient road in Zippori.
