Another Security Wall In Israel

Archaeologists working in Jerusalem have found a massive fortification showing that the ancient Canaanites had a formidable civilization:

The wall dates to the 17th century B.C., when Jerusalem was a small, fortified enclave controlled by the Canaanites, one of the peoples the Bible says lived in the Holy Land before the Hebrew conquest. The kingdom thought to have been ruled from Jerusalem by the biblical King David is usually dated to at least seven centuries later.

More grist for Palestinians' indigenous peoples argument.
