According to the Bible, Jesus was performed by the Romans by being nailed to a wood cross, a grisly practice called crucifixion. In June, archaeologists reported that they ‘d discovered a 2,000 year-old example of this technique of execution. The skeleton of a male found near Venice revealed fractures and sores on the heel bone, made around the time of death, that might suggest that he was crucified.
According to the scientists, it was just the 2nd historical proof of crucifixion ever discovered. The other came from a 1968 discovery of a Roman-era guy’s skeleton with a nail driven through the heel. Nevertheless, historic records suggest that Romans utilized crucifixion for 1,000 years, till the 4th century A.D.
