Archaeologists working at Khirbet Kafr Mer, near Beit El, discovered dozens of complete jars and other artifacts at the bottom of a cistern.  The vessels date to the Second-Temple period, and were used by residents in a Jewish village that occupied the area around the time of Jesus. The cistern had been repurposed at some point in antiquity and converted from a water basin into a storage basement for vessels.  Some of the vessels were found within plastered niches carved into the walls of the cistern.  While many archaeological excavations in Israel were canceled, the dig at Khirbet Kafr Mer continued.  The discovery of intricately carved stone table at the site was announced in August.
