Citadel unearthed in Jerusalem dating back to time of King David, 3,800-year-old biblical fortress discovered in City of David Archaeologists finish a 15-year-long excavation of the “Spring Citadel” dating back to the time of Kings David and Solomon.

“The Spring Citadel was built in order to save and protect the water of the city from enemies coming to conquer it, as well as to protect the people going down to the spring to get water and bring it back up to the city,” said the director of development in the City of David, Oriya Dasberg.

The citadel is believed to have protected the Gihon spring, described in the Book of Kings as the location of King Solomon’s anointing.

The Spring Citadel is the largest Canaanite fortress yet discovered in Israel, and is believed to be the largest known fortress predating the reign of King Herod, according to the Antiquities Authority.

The fully excavated site has reopened to the public and will offer fuller access to visitors who wish to explore a piece of biblical history.
