An ancient Jag was found in excavations under the Western Wall Tunnels

In excavations of the Western Wall Tunnels, we find many remnants that offer us a glimpse into the lives of local people in ancient times.

The utensil in this photograph was found whole in an archaeological excavation under the pavement of the Western Wall plaza, conducted in conjunction with the Israel Antiquities Authority Educational centers. The excavation is focused now on the later layers from the 18th – 20th centuries CE – the Ottoman and British Mandate periods and during the Jordanian rule of the Old City.

Interesting Facts

The Western Wall Plaza hosts approximately 60,000 people. It symbolizes the Jewish link to Jerusalem and serves as the synagogue closest to the remains of both Holy Temples.
The Western Wall's visible stones tell of its history from the time of the Holy Temples' ruin. The original Herodian stones are distinct from the others in size and in their unique borders.
The building style of "grading" used when layering the Western Wall's stones, teaches us that the Temple Mount's walls were not perpendicular but marginally sloping.
