Old grenade found in older Jerusalem wall


Archaeologists are trying to determine how a century-old Turkish hand grenade ended up hidden in an even older wall in Jerusalem.

The Israel Antiquities Authority announced the find Wednesday, Haaretz reported. The grenade was discovered Monday by a conservation team working near the Damascus Gate in the Old City.

A police explosives team was called to the scene. The grenade was subjected to a controlled demolition after experts went over it and concluded it dated from the last days of the Ottoman Empire and still contained explosive material.



I'm sure there's a normal explanation for it but it really is fun reading stories like these.

Really? They had to explode it? There could have been some valuable data that could have been obtained from it.

Think of how many people have passed by that throughout the years.
Thankfully it hadn't went off.

Had it unintentionally went off at anytime through those hidden years, not only could it have caused pedistrian injury, I seriously doubt the explostion would have been credited as a blast from the past and not atributed to current issues.


I feel sick thinking a child could have been the one to have found it
and hid it there.

Maybe a time traveler from the past planted it there...
