      Biblical Wall May Have Been Located
      The Guardian [UK], November 30, 2007

      A wall mentioned in the Bible's Book of Nehemiah and long sought by
      archaeologists apparently has been found, an Israeli archaeologist says.
      A team of archaeologists discovered the wall in Jerusalem's ancient City
      of David during a rescue attempt on a tower that was in danger of
      collapse, said Eilat Mazar, head of the Institute of Archaeology at the
      Shalem Center, a Jerusalem-based research and educational institute, and
      leader of the dig. Artifacts including pottery shards and arrowheads
      found under the tower suggested that both the tower and the nearby wall
      are from the 5th century B.C., the time of Nehemiah, Mazar said this
      week. Scholars previously thought the wall dated to the Hasmonean period
      from about 142 B.C. to 37 B.C. The findings suggest that the structure
      was actually part of the same city wall the Bible says Nehemiah rebuilt,
      Mazar said. The Book of Nehemiah gives a detailed description of
      construction of the walls, destroyed earlier by the Babylonians.
