Evidence unearthed of Jerusalem’s protective ‘Third Wall’ from Second Temple period

The Antiquities Authority on Thursday said the remnants were first discovered last winter in the capital’s downtown Russian Compound, where the new sprawling campus of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design is being constructed.
