OPHEL EXCAVATIONS

In 1986-87 Eilat Mazar excavated along with her grandfather prof. Benjamin Mazar at the Ophel (the biblical acropolis of First Temple Interval Jerusalem), on behalf of the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew College of Jerusalem. The benefits from their excavations are revealed in Qedem 29 (1989).

Because then, she has conducted a number of excavation seasons at the Ophel internet site, revealing First Temple Time period monumental constructions, such as a city gate, towers, and a royal composition, recommended by her to be part of the city wall of Jerusalem, built for the duration of the tenth century by King Solomon, as explained in 1 Kings 3:one. In accordance to E. Mazar, "It means that at that time, the 10th century, in Jerusalem there was a routine capable of carrying out this sort of building."

Since 2009 the Ophel excavations and publications have been funded by Daniel Mintz and Meredith Berkman. Numerous learners from Herbert W. Armstrong University in Edmond, Oklahoma, have volunteered in these excavations, and participated in the subsequent processing of finds. Outstanding final results from the new Ophel excavations are introduced at the internet site recognized by Mazar and the Higher education: keytodavidscity.com. This is in continuation of a shut connection among the Higher education and the Mazars, going back to the 1960s, at that time in association with her grandfather Benjamin Mazar's Temple Mount Excavations.
