A previously missing section of Jerusalem’s city wall, has been uncovered during excavations in the City of David National Park.

The wall was built during the First Temple Era.

It protected Jerusalem from a number of attacks during the reign of the kings of Judah.

That was until the Babylonians broke through it and conquered the city, as described in 2 Kings 25:10.

But not everything was destroyed, and parts of the wall remain standing to this day.

The excavations were conducted by the Israel Antiquities Authority, in partnership with the City of David Foundation..

Their archaeologists say the discovery verifies that the remains are undeniably from the eastern wall of ancient Jerusalem.

They also found a stone Babylonian stamp seal and a clay impression of a seal, bearing a Judaean name.
