He will also talk about the impressive findings that were unearthed at the site, including a section of an ancient aqueduct that was in use until the 20th century, a bathhouse, commercial streets from the Byzantine period, and a portion of the Old City wall that was built during the Ayyubid Period (13th century), which preceded the existing Ottoman wall. Following its discovery, the site was neglected and remained `buried` beneath parking garages and modern-day thoroughfares. The project aims to preserve the archaeological findings, make them accessible to the public, and incorporate the site in the Mamilla and Jaffa Gate complex at the entrance to the Old City, where it will be a historical exhibition.

Colonial Jerusalem
Meeting place: the plaza at the entrance to Jaffa Gate
Friday, October 27th, 14:00  
House for reservation
For thirty years, Jerusalem was planned and built under the British Mandate government. During that period, Britain ruled about one-third of the world`s territory and under it scores of cities were planned and built, new and old alike. How did all of that affect Jerusalem? How can the term "colonial city" be reconciled with Jerusalem`s standing as the Holy City? And how does all that relate to the Arts and Crafts movement, garden cities and capital cities? Marking the 100th anniversary of the start of the British Mandate in Jerusalem, Dr. Noah Hysler Rubin leads this tour that asks whether Jerusalem is a colonial city. The tour will examine the planning of the Holy City in the vicinity of Jaffa Gate and along the Old City walls and review the changes that took place along one of the city`s main thoroughfares – Derech Hevron. The tour will end at the Jerusalem House of Quality where materials from the Virtual Archive of Architecture and Urban Planning in the Mandate Period will be screened. The archive is currently being established by Prof. Mike Turner and Dr. Noah Hysler Rubin with backing from the Jerusalem Development Authority.

It is one of the most comprehensive documentation efforts dealing with a historical site that have ever been undertaken in Israel, which led to uncovering findings and a renewed understanding of the development stages of the village. The project also included comprehensive documentation of the village and its surroundings: an environmental and landscape survey, a natural resources survey, an archaeological survey, historical documentation of the village and the public space, and an analysis of the population`s composition. The documentation was conducted by a team of architects and engineers from the Conservation Department at the Israel Antiquities Authority as well as architecture firms and experts from different fields.
