Researchers found the remains of a Roman military camp in Legio, near Tel Megiddo in northern Israel.
Among the finds is a monumental gate that led to the center of the camp and headquarters, an inscription written in Latin, or clay pots. The camp is dated to the II-III century CE and it covered an area of 300 by 500 meters.
At that time, the legio VI Ferrata stationed there, whose task was to keep Syria and Palestine, to secure roads and maintain order. The legio also took part in suppressing the rebellion of Bar Kokhba in 132 CE.
