A worker of the Israel's Antiquities Authority shows a menora carved on stone, that was found in what archaeologists say is a 2,000-year-old drainage tunnel leading to Jerusalem's Old City, at the IAA's offices in Jerusalem, Monday, Aug. 8, 2011. On Monday, archaeologists from the IAA presented a menora, a seven-branched Jewish candelabra that was one of the central features of the Temple, carved on stone, found during excavations of an ancient drainage tunnel beneath Jerusalem, late last month. The excavation of the tunnel has yielded new artifacts from a war here 2,000 years ago, archaeologists said Monday, shedding light on a key episode of the past buried under today's politically combustible city.
