Ancient artifacts discovered at Jerusalem’s Western Wall

The Western Wall is a center of spirituality and history. After uncovering large sections of the Western Wall that were buried for about 1,700 years, archaeologists discovered an ancient Roman theater-like structure, and this discovery helps explain what life was like in Jerusalem after it was razed by the Romans. Eight completely preserved stone courses from the Western Wall, built of huge stones and of outstanding construction quality, were unearthed under a layer of earth about twenty-five feet thick under Wilson’s Arch — the only intact, visible structure remaining from the Temple Mount compound from the Second Temple period.
