Recently, just outside of the Old City in Jerusalem, a stone was discovered which appears to answer the question as to why exactly the Jews revolted against the Romans 2000 years ago.

The stone bears the name of the Roman Emperor Hadrian and the year, which is a few years before the Bar Kochba revolt. This gives a good, clear indication that the reason for the revolt was due to the harsher measures imposed by the Romans at that time, and this certainly supports that theory.
