Archaeologists in Israel are restoring a 2,000-year-old Roman basilica destroyed by earthquake in the 4th century

Archaeologists in Israel are working to restore a 2,000-year-old Roman-era basilica believed to be the largest in the country.

In Ancient Rome, a basilica was a large public building where citizens socialized, conducted business, held performances and conducted religious ceremonies.

Experts believe the ancient edifice in Ashkelon, a city on southern Israel’s Mediterranean coastline, dates to the decades before Christ’s birth, when the region that would become Israel was under Rome’s control.

Devastated by earthquake and the passage of millennia, it’s now being rebuilt and will welcome visitors again in the coming months.
