On Monday, Israel's Antiquities Authority announced that two artifacts have been found: a Roman-era sword and a stone carving of the image of a Menorah.

The dig has uncovered so far half of the old drainage channel, which is around 600 meters. In earlier digs the archaeologists found traces of people who lived in the drainage channels hiding from the Romans during the time of the Second Temple's destruction.
