A sea dragon and other ancient secrets recently discovered

Love Exploring Logo By Rachel Truman of Love Exploring | Slide 2 of 32: Archaeologists working at a dig in Yavne in central Israel made an incredible discovery in October 2021 when they uncovered a 1,500-year-old wine-making complex. Dating back to the Byzantine-era, the sprawling winery consisted of five wine presses and large warehouses. Capable of making two million liters of wine a year, it was likely the largest in the world at the time. The team also unearthed Gaza jars, typically used for wine storage in the region during the Byzantine period, and kilns for firing clay amphorae.
