Archaeologists uncover Prague's oldest ramparts

Archaeologists have uncovered parts of Prague's oldest ramparts, dating back to the 9th and 10th centuries. The remnants of the wall, which was part of one of Prague's main entrance gates, were discovered in the cellar of the Academy of Performing Arts building.

This discovery verifies the description of 10th century Jewish diplomat Ibrahim ibn Jaqub, who described Prague as a beautiful and bustling "town of stone and lime."
