An ancient stone wall uncovered just outside the Temple Mount in Jerusalems Old City may be the first structural evidence of biblical King Solomons
building in the city, an archaeologist said today.
A comparison of this latest finding with city walls and gates from the period of the First Temple, as well as pottery found at the site, enable us to
postulate with a great degree of assurance that the wall revealed was built by King Solomon in Jerusalem in the latter part of the 10th century
B.C.E., dig director archaeologist Eilat Mazar said.
