Lost civilzation drain segment. . . .found Historical drain segment found in Israel
The Israel Antiquities Authority Sunday found a nearly 230-foot-long segment of a historical drain system in Jerusalem.

Archaeologists found the drain section between Jerusalem's Temple Mount and the Pool of Siloam. It is thought to be part of a lengthy drain system that reached from Jerusalem to the Kidron River, Haaretz reported.

The drain system is thought to have cleared rainwater from numerous regions in and around the Israeli capital before A.D. 70.
