In 2004 Shukron and archaeologist Ronny Reich excavated the Second Temple period Pool of Siloam. The find was formally announced on August 9, 2005. The pool was used for Jewish healing rituals and is cited in the New Testament as the site of a healing miracle of Jesus.
In 2007 Shukron and Reich excavated an ancient Jerusalem water channel that drained Jerusalem. Items discovered in the tunnel appear to confirm Josephus's account of Jews using the sewer as a refuge and escape form the burning city. Among the finds was a rare half-shekel coin, used to pay the Second Temple tax; only seven other such coins have been found in archeological digs.
In May 2012 Shukron told the public, that archaeologists, while sifting through the debris from the excavation site City of David just south of the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, found a shard from a bulla bearing the name of the city of Bethlehem. This is the first time that Bethlehem is mentioned outside the Bible from the period of the First Temple.
