Well-preserved 1,600-year-old winery and a Roman bathhouse unearthed in Jerusalem

Archaeologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) have unearthed a rare and well-preserved 1,600-year-old winery and Roman bathhouse in Jerusalem’s historic Schneller Compound, which once served as an orphanage, and later as an IDF army base.

The discovery, announced by the IAA on Wednesday, was financed by the Merom Yerushalayim Company and carried out with the authority prior to the construction of residential buildings for Jerusalem’s ultra-orthodox population.
