Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1191 – Another Jerusalem update


A seemingly large proportion of archaeology in Israel is taking place in Jerusalem these days, in particular the oldest part of Jerusalem, which is called Silwan, or the City of David.

On the latest update, we’re talking about Roman mansion found in the dig at the Givati Car Park construction park. There’s a report of a street collapse in Silwan from the Palestinian media, not a lot of additional information available. And then there’s word from the excavation along the city wall on Mt. Zion that we visited during last year’s tour. They found a stone cup with an Aramaic inscription. The content of the inscription hasn’t been released yet.
