The Archaeological Site

Tenth Roman Legion Furnaces

1900 years ago, a craftsman’s house was built here for clay vessels and home accessories. It was set up and run by the 10th Legion of the Roman army and its remains were unearthed during the excavation of the foundations of the ICC. They include water pools and surfaces for working the silt, an area where the craftsmen shaped the vessels and other products, and a set of kilns for high-temperature firing.

All the items displayed alongside the kilns are exact copies of the original items uncovered during the excavations. The original artefacts can be seen in the display windows in the entrance lobby to the Teddy Hall.

Getting at ICC

The International Convention Center – Binyanei Hauma, is located on the entrance to Jerusalem, within a short car drive from Tel Aviv and even shorter from the Ben Gurion International Airport. It is accessible from roads No. 1, No. 6 (a toll road), and No. 443. As such, it is highly accessible from any direction. The Center is a few minutes-walk from the Railway Station, the Light Train station, and the Jerusalem Central Bus Station.
