I couldn’t make this up.

Archeologists in Israel have found a Roman road from the first century. See details below. Maybe Monty Python was right?

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israeli archaeologists have unearthed the remains of a second century terraced street and bath house which provide vital clues about the layout of Roman Jerusalem.

The Israel Antiquities Authority said the 30-metre (90-foot) alley was used by the Romans to link the central Cardo thoroughfare with a bath house and with a bridge to the Temple Mount, once the site of Jerusalem’s ancient Jewish temple….

Seligman said the newly-discovered alley once led to an important bridge over a ravine known during the time of Jesus as the Valley of the Cheesemakers.
