Inside, we stopped off at the money changer's shop. She showed us real coins, including a widow's mite, that would have been used during the time of Christ. Very interesting stuff!
Next, we went to the shop where they dyed wool and showed us pictures of the things they would have used to dye the wool with. Purple was an expensive color because there was a tiny part of shells that had purple ink in it. They would scrap it out to use for dye. Can you imagine how much time that would have taken for just enough purple for one cloke? No wonder it was considered a royal color!
