Archaeologists excavating an ancient water system in Israel have unearthed a network of drain pipes and underground tunnels that would have served one of the grandest palaces in the biblical kingdom of Judea, according to Reuters.

"The infrastructure of the palace was remodelled throughout the centuries to fit the needs of the Babylonians, Persians, Romans and Hasmoneans who ruled the Holy Land," said Oded Lipschits, a Tel Aviv University archaeologis who heads the dig with an academic from Germany's University of Heidelberg.

The Persians - who took control of the area around 539 BC - were responsible for creating the original water system, decorating the area with small waterfalls in an attempt to create a paradise setting in the middle of the desert.
