The 9th/8th century ashlar inserts and wall appear to have been destroyed sometime during the 8th century B.C. Several lines of evidence suggest that the agent of destruction was an earthquake.
The lower wall was originally built in the LB IIB, sometime in the 13th century B.C. What caused this wall to go out of use is unclear from the data available in the probe, although a 10th century surface halfway up this wall indicates that it remained in use until the middle of that century.
Different sections indicate construction by at least the 10th century, and probably as early as the 13th century B.C. The divergent dates for different sections of the Outer Wall are undoubtedly due to the fact that the wall had a long and complex history.

 Jerusalem in the 10th / 9th centuries BC By Margreet Steiner
In the case of the 10th and 9th centuries BC, the situation is very complicated.
In the past, buildings or architectural phases were assigned to the 10th century BC because they were assumed to have been built by King Solomon.
Some propose to down date the whole complex to the 9th century BC (the "low chronology"), others maintain that the 10th century is right, at least for certain parts of the complex.

 The Immaculate Conception - evidence prior to 10th century
He says there is "no mention" of the IC prior to the 10th Century, so all that is needed to totally discredit his claim is ONE statement in the positive that denies the claim.
Duchesne thinks (Origines du culte chr., 262) that before the seventh century no other feast was kept at Rome, and that consequently the feast of the Assumption, found in the sacramentaries of Gelasius and Gregory, is a spurious addition made in the eighth or seventh century.
He proves, furthermore, that the Mass of the Gregorian Sacramentary, such as we have it, is of Gallican origin (since the belief in the bodily assumption of Mary, under the influence of the apocryphal writings, is older in Gaul than in Rome), and that it supplanted the old Gelasian Mass.

 Cornish (and Other) Personal Names from the 10th Century Bodmin Manumissions
Cornish is a Celtic language in the Brythonic family, a close relative of Welsh and Breton, spoken on the Cornish peninsula in the south-west of Britain -- separated from Wales by the Bristol Channel and from Brittany by the English Channel.
The various Brythonic languages are considered to begin diverging around the 6th century, but their close relationship can be seen in the similarity of the personal names found in them over the next several centuries.
Unlike the case in Wales, the Anglo-Saxon advance in the Cornish peninsula was steady and eventually complete, reaching the eastern parts of Devon in the 7th century, the eastern part of Cornwall proper by the early 8th, and probably becoming complete in the mid 9th century.

 Thomas Sowell
Back in the 18th century, Adam Smith said that the difference between porters and philosophers were due to education and suggested that there are fewer innate differences among human beings than among dogs.
The fact that this has all changed in the centuries since then does not mean that this 10th century scholar was not correct in what he said when he said it.
In the early 20th century, many believers in innate inequality presented what may have seemed like a logically airtight argument that our national IQ was in danger of declining over time, because people with low IQs usually had more children than people with high IQs.

 Johns Hopkins Gazette | November 28, 2005
"The 10th century was the time when the Hebrew script was emerging as a distinct tradition." In fact, he says, a case can be made that the Tel Zayit stone is the oldest Hebrew inscription ever found.
The traditional view is that the 10th century was the Solomonic period, the time when the kingdom of Judah flourished and its capital, Jerusalem, was a rich and powerful city.
The archaeology of Tel Zayit shows that in the 10th century the site was linked culturally with the highlands to the east, not the coastal plain to the west, so that it was probably controlled by Jerusalem.

Before the mid-12th century, however, it would appear that freedom, not regular recurrence, was the rhythmic norm in Western music, its matrix.
If we examine chant manuscripts from the 11th century on, we find for the most part no indications of length in the neumes and no overall rhythmic regularity: the notes are equalist, i.e., of equal length (though the singer naturally holds notes at the ends of phrases), and they are arranged freely.
It was the way chant was sung in the West in the 9th and 10th centuries, and most likely in the 8th as well.

To complicate matters, monumental stone sculpture of the 10th century -the most obvious material relic of the Viking period - has been interpreted as evidence of Viking settlement, but intriguingly much of it is found in places with English place-names such as Middleton and Weston in Yorkshire.
A form of monument peculiar to the 10th century is the so-called 'hogback' tomb, of which over 100 examples survive.
Ninth and 10th century burials containing grave-goods and evidence for cremation have been interpreted as the burials of Danes, since these forms of burial were apparently unknown in England on the eve of the Scandinavian invasion.

A 10th century Buddha statue was discovered near the coastal village of Manamelkudi in Pudukottai district.
The Manamelkudi port served as an export point for paddy and rice as attested by inscriptions in the area and was also called the "rice port'' in the 13th century.
From the inscriptional and archival evidence it could be inferred that the ancient port of Saliyur (`sali' meaning paddy in Sanskrit) and Nellinur, as described in Maduraikanchi of Sangam period, was situated in Manamelkudi, says Mr.
