During construction for a planned walkway that will connect to the Temple Mount, the Israel Antiquities Authority have uncovered the remains of an ancient city dating back the First Temple at a site located near the Western Wall. Archaeologists working at the dig discovered the remains hidden beneath a subterranean street dating back to the Roman period. One of the most exciting artefacts found are several figurines of women and a personal letter seal made from a semi previous stone with the name "Netanyahu ben Yaush" engraved on it.03/16/08
