Roman emperor Titus' 'Third Wall' siege in A.D. 70 found in Jerusalem Archaeologists have discovered the remains of an ancient tower thought to have once stood atop Jerusalem’s fabled ‘Third Wall,’ which was breached during the Roman emperor Titus’ siege of the city 2,000 years ago. The grisly battle ultimately led to the conquest of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Second Temple, and researchers have long debated the details of the city’s boundaries on the eve of the onslaught in 70 AD. Not far from the tower, the team also found scores of projectile stones that were catapulted at guards who stood atop the tower, providing new evidence of the ancient battle that could be proof of the wall’s existence at the site.

The friars quickly abandoned the expedition, but the Polos continued on, possibly by camel, to the Persian port city of Hormuz. Failing to find any boats to their liking, they instead took take a series of overland traders’ routes that, in the 19th century, would become known as the Silk Road.
