Archaeologists announced Thursday that they had found the first historical evidence verifying the fear and terror imposed on Jews during the period of the destruction of the Second Temple by both Roman soldiers and extremist Jewish rebels. The evidence consists of three small pots that had been used for food, discovered inside an underground water channel.
The discovery was made near the Kotel, in a dig being conducted at Robinson's Arch. Archaeological Authority workers discovered three clay pots and a candleholder. According to dig leader Eli Shukrun, the find indicates that a family had been taking shelter in the underground water channel, eating food there and avoiding being seen by Roman soldiers, as well as Jews who would have tried to take away their food.

Thanks SJackson. The Roman Wars / Jewish Revolts culminated in a multiple siege in which the Romans had conflicting Jewish factions under siege as they fought one another.
The “extremist” Jewish rebels were worse than the Romans.
The late Michael Grant’s book about the wars goes into quite a lot of detail; the problem among the Jews of that time was lack of unity, y’know, kinda like self-described conservatives today. :’)
Don’t I know it.
They found some pots. They extrapolated a magnificent story.
