What's 3700 Years Old and Beautiful?

I saw the story tonight on Channel One TV

Archaeologists find 3,700-year-old wall in Jerusalem

Archaeologists digging in Jerusalem have uncovered a 3,700-year-old wall that is the oldest example of massive fortifications ever found in the city...The 26-foot-high wall is believed to have been part of a protected passage built by ancient Canaanites from a hilltop fortress to a nearby spring that was the city's only water source and vulnerable to marauders.

The discovery marks the first time archaeologists have found such massive construction from before the time of Herod...The wall dates to the 17th century BC, 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.


And a second find:

A Large, Magnificent Roman Building, c. 1,800 Years Old, was Exposed in the City of David In the Israel Antiquities Authority Excavations at the 'Givati Car Park', in the Walls Around Jerusalem National Park
