Archaeologists with the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) are uncovering evidence of Byzantine Beersheba in a most unexpected place: the city’s bustling central bus station. During recent renovations at the station, which sees thousands of travelers a day, workers came across archaeological remains from the Byzantine era. Since then, the IAA, together with archaeology students from Ben-Gurion University, has been working hard to uncover as much information about the site as possible. Thus far, archaeologists have uncovered several rooms filled with broken jars and coins, as well as a number of interesting underground rooms that were dug out beneath the floors of the normal dwellings.
