Temple floor tiles reconstructed

TEMPLE MOUNT WATCH: Archaeologists Recreate Tiles of Temple Where Jesus Walked (RINAT HARASH, Reuters).

There is also a Reuters video on the story: Archaeologists recreate tiles from time of Jesus. Drawing on relics and historical texts, Israeli archaeologists and masons have recreated the sacred flooring of the ancient Jewish temple in Jerusalem. Francesca Lynagh reports. The hit-and-miss subtitles for the video look to be machine generated and unedited.

The floor tiles seem to be created on the basis of the Herodian-era floor tiles discovered several years ago by the Temple Mount Sifting Project. I noted the story here when it came out. For more posts on it, start here and follow the links.
