1700 years after

מקווה טהרה עתיק. צילום: אסף פרץ, רשות העתיקותכתובת על קיר המקווה. צילום: אסף פרץ, רשות העתיקותWhen ever paving road near my place,there is something new being discovered.
This time is a Mikve (small pool) fool of cooking pots. candles and more things that were used 1700 years ago.
On the walls of the pool there are signatures of 2 Australians soldiers who were there while WW2.
( the photos are by Asaf Perez).
I discovered those amazing news while I was  in the gas station that I am visiting once a week and only by chance I was looking to the other side of the road. How many more things I miss when I am not looking carefully.
