Pool of Siloam to be opened to visitors

ARCHAEOLOGY AND TOURISM: Jerusalem’s ancient Pool of Siloam to be opened to public. The 2,700-year-old pool is being fully excavated so that in the near future visitors can see this site of great historic and religious significance. (Georgia Barnett, Israel21c).

Carl Rasmussen has commentary on the story and additional photos at his HolyLandPhotos' Blog: The Pool of Siloam to be Excavated.
