The Israel Antiquities Authority recently announced the discovery of a 2000-year-old stone quarry in Jerusalem, with large blocks in various stages of the pre-construction process. Some of the square blocks of stone still lie as if they are about to be detached from the bedrock for transportation. The quarry dates to the First Century BC, and was likely used for some of the large-scale building projects in the city, including the Temple Mount. So far approximately 600 square meters of the quarry have been excavated, but the archaeologists believe it could be 2-to-3 times larger. The quarry will provide scholars with an opportunity to learn more about the ancient technologies and processes by which building stones were quarried.
