Stone tower in Jerusalem built 1,000 years earlier than thought

The tower at Gihon Spring, a water source downhill from ancient Jerusalem, wasn’t built in 1700 B.C., as archaeologists previously thought, but rather almost 1,000 years later, they found.
Researchers made the unexpected finding after excavations around the tower showed that its base was not built in bedrock.
