Jerusalem, the Old City

Kate Raphael
Extended report

In February and March 2011, a salvage excavation took place within a private residence at 7 Shone Halakhot Street in the Jewish Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem (Permit No. A-6112; map ref. 2221/6314; Raphael 2015), prior to renovations. The excavation, on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority, was directed by K. Raphael. It yielded a quarry from the Second Temple period and a Medieval building; its walls served as a base for an Ottoman-period building, which is still in use. R. Kool identified the coins and assisted in writing the numismatic report, and R. Bouchnick studied the faunal remains.
