The Neolithic wall of Jericho dates from approximately 8000 BCE. If interpreted as an “urban fortification”, it is the oldest city wall discovered by archaeologists anywhere in the world.

Kathleen Kenyon was a leading British archaeologist of Neolithic culture in the Fertile Crescent. She is best known for her excavations of Jericho between 1952 and 1958, and has been called one of the most influential archaeologists of the 20th century
