The fort — which is said to have played a pivotal role throughout the Maccabean revolt by both the Book of Maccabees and by first-century historian Josephus — has eluded archaeologists up until now. The 2,000-year-old ruins were discovered beneath a parking lot, where researchers found lead weapons, bronze arrowheads, and other items such as wine jars, according to a report from CNN.
