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.

 8TH Century Prophets, Caring for Nobodies   (Site not responding. Last check: )
As the question of the prophets of the eighth century and their concern for the people (especially the nobodies) that everybody except God had forgotten is considered, it is hoped that an awareness of the both the covenantal and ethical problems present at the time will be highlighted.
It was obvious to the prophets that the nobodies of the society had been forgotten by the society in general and as passages like Amos 5:11, Micah 2:2 and Isaiah 5:8 point out the rich had trampled upon the poor, coveting their fields, evicting the widows and their children, selling them into slavery.
It can be said then in conclusion, that the prophets of the eighth century were concerned primarily for the people and especially for the victims of the power structure of society.
