      RAMAT RACHEL, Israel, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Archaeologists in Israel have
      unearthed an ancient water system which was modified by the conquering
      Persians to turn the desert into a paradise.

      The network of reservoirs, drain pipes and underground tunnels served
      one of the grandest palaces in the biblical kingdom of Judea.

      Archaeologists first discovered the palace in 1954, a structure built on
      a six-acre (2.4 hectare) site where the communal Ramat Rachel farm now
      stands.

      Recent excavations unearthed nearly 70 square metres (750 square feet)
      of a unique water system.
