The refugees that came to Jerusalem from the collapsing kingdom of Israel in 721 BCE built their homes in an unsettled area on the city's western hill, and King Hezekiah had to protect this area from Sennacherib's army ahead of the Assyrian siege. This video shows the massive wall that Hezekiah built, a portion of which was uncovered in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem by archaeologist Nahman Avigad. At the foot of the wall are the remains of private dwellings that were demolished during its construction, an action that angered the prophet Isaiah.
