Mail Online has an interesting article (complete with several high-res pictures) about a cave system used by Jews in the late first century.  The caves helped Jews fight against the Romans during two revolts; one revolt occurred around the time the temple was destroyed in Jerusalem (approx. 70AD) and a second revolt, known as the  Bar Kokhba revolt, happened several decades later.
