Israeli antiquities experts have found archaeological evidence of the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD.

They’ve uncovered spherical stones that are believed to have been used as projectiles to bring down the walls of Jerusalem during the four-month long siege.

The archaeologists used computer programs to re-create the ancient battle.

Their calculations supported the theory that hundreds of ballistic balls were hurled at the walls from up to 400 metres away.

They are believed to have been launched by sophisticated bolt-throwing machines.

The Christian Post reports the dig also found hundreds of smaller stones hurled by catapults — along with spears, swords and armour-piercing arrowheads.

The Second Temple lasted for almost 600-years before the Romans destroyed it to crush a Jewish revolt.
