History of Perfume:Perfume vials from Christ's era unearthed in Israel.

ROME - A team of Franciscan archaeologists digging in the biblical town of Magdala in what is now Israel say they have unearthed vials of perfume similar to those that may have been used by the woman said to have washed Jesus' feet (Mary Magdalene).

The perfumed ointments were found intact at the bottom of a mud-filled swimming pool, alongside hair and make-up objects.

Magdala was the name of an ancient town near the shores of the Sea of Galilee in what is now northern Israel.
Studium Biblicum Franciscanum supports research in biblical studies but focuses on archaeological excavation of sites linked to the New Testament and early Christianity in the Middle East.
