Ancient Wall Found in Jerusalem

From an article published at the Trumpet.com:

"A section of an ancient city wall of Jerusalem from the 10th century bce—possibly built by King Solomon—has been revealed in archaeological excavations directed by Dr. Eilat Mazar and conducted under the auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The wall, 70 meters long and 6 meters high, is located in the area known as the Ophel, between the City of David and the southern wall of the Temple Mount."

Read the rest of the article here. There is also an article in Hebrew that has more pictures than here.
