From 1969 to 1982, extensive archaeological excavations were conducted in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem under the direction of the late Professor Nahman Avigad. During these excavations, impressive remains of fortifications, public buildings and domestic dwellings were found, as well as numerous artifacts from all of the periods of the continuous settlement of this area, beginning at the end of the Iron Age until the Ottoman period. This volume is the first of the final reports of these excavations. It presents the architectural remains and part of the small finds from three excavation areas: A, W, and X-2. Here were found remains of the northern section of the First Wall that protected ancient Jerusalem's Southwestern Hill during the First and Second Temple periods. Bookseller Inventory #
