Ancient Wall Discovered

Israeli archaeologists say they have uncovered a wall that dates to the 10th century BCE in Jerusalem. That's the period of King Solomon and the major construction on the First Temple as described in the Bible. The massive wall is more than 200 feet long and 32 feet high. A gatehouse and tower was also discovered. One of the archaeologists says it fits with the Biblical descriptions of King Solomon's construction in Jerusalem. The effort is being conducted by a team from Hebrew University, the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Israel Nature and Parks Authority.
