Archaeologist on Great Moment: 'I was Paralyzed'
Archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar, who unearthed what is widely considered one of Israel's greatest historical finds, has been speaking to Arutz Sheva about the emotional moment of the discovery.
In summer excavations at the foot of the Temple Mount, Mazar unearthed two bundles of treasure containing thirty-six gold coins, gold and silver jewelry as well as a gold medallion with the menorah (Temple candelabrum) symbol etched into it. Also etched into the 10-cm. medallion are a shofar (ram’s horn) and the image of a Torah scroll.
