2,000-year-old Roman arrowhead discovered E-mail

Israeli archaeologists found a nearly 2,000-year-old Roman arrow in northern Israel, the Kinneret College on the Sea of Galilee said on 12 August.

According to the researchers, the arrow was fired in the year 67 AD from a Roman military shooting device (catapult) during the Roman siege of the city of Yodfat.

Earlier that year, Emperor Nero had decided to suppress the Jewish revolt that had broken out in 66 AD. Following this decision, an army of 60,000 soldiers, commanded by Vespasian and Titus, gathered in the ancient city of Acre, situated on the Mediterranean coast.
