Jerusalem (TPS) – The Moriah Jerusalem Development Corporation has discovered an ancient settlement possibly dating back to the Chalcolithic period some 7,000 years ago in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat, through archeological excavations conducted on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA).

“These are the remains of two structures and maybe also of another earlier structure that were built of stone in such a way that I would have thought that they were walls from the Byzantine period had they been discovered without calculating their age,” IAA Excavations Director Ronit Lupo told Tazpit Press Service (TPS).
