The Tenth Legion Roman Ceramics workshop was discovered beneath the corner of the Israel Convention Center in salvage excavations conducted in 1992-1993.

The site proved to be one of the biggest ceramic workshop ever discovered in Israel, and the most remarkable find from the Late Roman period (135-325 CE) made in Jerusalem.

The site is well displayed today within the convention center.
