Find Megalith In Jerusalem
of archaeologists say they have uncovered the remains of a massive stone fortification deep in the soil under the oldest part
of Jerusalem. The structure, described as a 26-foot-high wall spanning at least 79 feet in length, is believed to have been
built by the Canaanites who occupied the region some 3,700 years ago.
is still ongoing so the team, led by Ronny Reich and Eli Shukrun, may have only opened the tip of a great historical site
in one of the oldest places of known human habitation in the world. There may even be additional parts of the wall to be uncovered.
theories are that the wall protected a passageway that led from the fortified City of Jerusalem down the eastern slope to
the Gihon Spring in the Kidron Valley where occupants acquired their water.
to the Old Testament story, King David and his army used the Gihon Spring to gain entrance to the city when they captured
it seven centuries later. Historians say the fortification proves that Jerusalem was large enough and wealthy enough during
that ancient time to have supported major building projects.
they are not explaining is how such a structure was made during a period in human history that has been described as the “Bronze
Age.” That is because the wall consists of boulders weighing four to five tons.
Director Reich agreed that he is perplexed as to how such a structure was built by people of that period. “I don’t
think that any engineer today without electrical power could do it,” he said.
describes the Canaanites as an ancient pagan people that inhabited the region before the Israelites moved in. The text claims
the father of the tribe, Canaan, was the son of Ham and the grandson of Noah. Historical research shows that the Canaanites
spread throughout the Mediterranean coastal area, and may have been the origin of the Phoenicians, who became famed world
sailors, explorers and traders.
also are credited with inventing a form of writing that became the alphabet, which through Greek and Roman influence, became
the successor to the contemporary writing used by Western civilization.
it is incorrect to consider the Canaanites to be a simple people just coming to terms with agricultural and urban living.
They were obviously an advanced society, as were the people who built such massive stone fortifications as Stonehenge, the
Pyramids, and other megaliths found all over the world.
at all of these places, including the new discovery in Jerusalem, is how these people managed to lift such massive rocks and
build these structures. Theories have ranged from graded manufactured roads on which the rocks were pushed or rolled by many
laborers, to great lost ancient civilizations that developed the technology needed or alien intervention.
it was done, the secret has been long lost to the modern world. The sheer number of these impossible stone structures, all
of them great monuments designed to stand for thousands of years, remain as mute testimony to a forgotten past.
