Burnt House information
Buried under rubble for centuries and only recently excavated, this house was destroyed in 70 CE when the Romans put the city to the torch. The archaeological remains on display include Roman-era coins, stone tablets, ovens, cooking pots and a spear that were found at the site, as well as a stone weight with the name ‘Kathros’ on it (Kathros was a priestly family living in the city at this time).
Piecing together the house's history, the museum has created a multimedia presentation shown in a number of languages, including English. Movies begin every 40 minutes, so be prepared to wait around for a bit until the next show.
