PILGRIM PATH. Archaeologists have found roads used by pilgrims on their way to the Jerusalem Temple. Stone steps recently uncovered in Jerusalem belong to the pilgrimage road that connected the Pool of Siloam (pictured) with the Temple. Dated to the first century B.C.E.—first century C.E., the Pool of Siloam was a freshwater pool in Jerusalem that may have functioned as a ritual bath, or mikveh.
