Another brick in the wall
The Jerusalem Post has a story about Israeli archaeologists unearthing the remains of a wall which used to encircle the city of Jerusalem. In a city as ancient as Jerusalem, the archaeologists were not only unearthing the ancient wall, but also the 120 year old remains of the archaeological dig (complete with bottles of Czech beer and wine - must've been a heckuva dig!) that originally unearthed the wall. Since the age of the wall has been determined to be 2,100 years old and was there until the Romans ransacked Jerusalem around ad70, it was certainly there at the time of Christ. This is all part of a plan to make a promenade that will include parts of the excavation.
