Outdoor archaeological exhibition in Old City

180 ARTIFACTS ON DISPLAY: New outdoor archaeological exhibit inaugurated in Jerusalem’s Old City. The exhibition, which stands on Hayehudim Street descending in the Cardo, was inaugurated on Tuesday (Rossella Tercatin, Jerusalem Post).
“The new display provides passersby with a direct glimpse into the splendor of the public buildings, civil and religious, which have stood in the area of the Jewish Quarter throughout the ages,” curator Ravit Nanner-Soriano said in a press release. “Visitors to the exhibition will be able to be impressed by the variety and richness of the items; among them, impressive parts of columns from the Roman, Byzantine and Crusader periods, cornices and decorated items from the Middle Ages to modern times.”
