Rock of Ages

By Linda Tancs

In a country filled with ancient remains, a newly discovered fortress over 3000 years old might not seem like a big deal. But in the City of David, just outside Jerusalem’s Old City, a 26-foot-high wall predating Herod proves that Jerusalem’s Bronze Age is characterized by more than measly little weapons and implements of the period. Now open to the public, the digs are believed to be part of a protected passageway built by Canaanites, residents of the Holy Land prior to the Hebrew conquest. And you thought the early Romans had dibs on the phrase “master builder.”
