Archaeology breakthrough: Huge 1,500-year-old WINE FACTORY discovered in Israel

Dr Seligman said: “In ancient times, wine had a great importance not only as an export product but for many other purposes.

“For example, first of all, people enjoyed drinking wine but beyond that, that was a major source of nutrition.

“And this was a safe drink because the water was often contaminated, so they could drink wine safely and then they could also, of course, take it in as part of their daily diet.”

Among the artefacts discovered at the site, the archaeologists also unearthed a number of oil lamps and children’s toys, as well as items from later periods.
