‘Nehemiah’s Wall’ Found Says Israeli Archaeologist

According to the Bible’s Book of Nehemiah, the Nehemiah’s Wall has been discovered in the ancient city of Jerusalem after a very long time by a team of archaeologists in Israel, when they were actually trying to save a tower that was in danger of collapsing. The leader of the excavation Eilat Mazar, from the Institute of Archaeology at Shalem Center; said that the artifacts included arrowheads and pottery shards were found near the tower, hence the ancient wall has to be nearby from 5th Century BC, which was the time of Nehemiah. The findings show that the structure has to be the part of the wall mentioned in the Bible. The Nehemiah book gives detailed information about the description of the wall, which was destroyed by the Babylonians.
