View of the Stepped Stone Structure and with model standing on the 19 feet thick eastern Palace of David wall. Nehemiah’s wall was constructed on top of the older wall as seen in the foreground. The moss covered jutting tower was removed. Only after excavating was it revealed it belonged to Nehemiah.
