Pilgrim Road

by Mackenzie Landi

An important thoroughfare once used by pilgrims going up to the Temple in Jerusalem was found on this day in 2019. Parts of the Pilgrim Road have been uncovered in the past, one of the most notable discoveries along this ancient footpath was the Pool of Siloam. As the main pathway that led people up from the south to the Temple, it is believed to have been built by Herod before AD 30 and destroyed by the Romans in AD 70.
