Eilat Mazar, Old City, Jerusalem, ArchaeologyA section of ancient walls recently uncovered in Jerusalem dates back to the time of King Solomon and supports the existence of the first temple, according to Israeli archaeologists, who call it "the most significant" find from the era of the first temple.


"This is the first time that a structure from that time has been found that may correlate with written descriptions of Solomon's building in Jerusalem," said Eilat Mazar, director of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem excavation team. "The Bible tells us that Solomon built - with the assistance of the Phoenicians, who were outstanding builders - the temple and his new palace and surrounded them with a city, most probably connected to the more ancient wall of the City of David."


Mazar cited 1 Kings 3. The walls date back to the 10th century BC.
