Dr Yonatan Adler, director of excavations at a site dating to the Roman period, shows chalkstone mugs and cores uncovered two-months prior, in the Israeli village of Reina, near the northern city of Nazareth, on August 10, 2017.

Archeologists discovered thousands cores of mugs on a rare site where Jews used to produce tableware made of chalk-stone, believed to meet the requirements of purity according to Jewish beliefs. The site is located about three kilometers from the place where Jesus performed the miracle of turning into wine water contained in stone jars during the Cana wedding according to Christian tradition.
