Pilgrims came from hundreds of miles away to sacrifice animals at an ancient temple in Jerusalem, new research suggests. An analysis of bones found in an ancient dump in the city dating back 2, years revealed that animals sacrificed at the temple came from far and wide. The finding, published in the September issue of the Journal of Archaeological Science, confirms visions of the temple depicted in historical Jewish texts and suggests the economic heart of the city was its slaughtering operation. At the time, Jerusalem was a bustling metropolis without any natural economic resources, as it was landlocked and far from most major trade routes. According to the Talmud, a Jewish religious text, the city's economic heart was the Holy Temple, the only place where Israelites could sacrifice animals as offerings to God. Parts of the animal that weren't sacrificed as a burnt offering were often left for people to feast on.

For a change, scientists are stepping out of the laboratory and into the field. It has been dated by three previously prevailing theories of its construction: early Roman before 70 CE , mid-Roman 1st-2nd century as Aelia Capitolina , or even the early Islamic periods, some years later.
