In the center of this photo is pictured the area of Jaffa Gate, as depicted on the 6th century mosaic map discovered in Medeba, Jordan.  Recent discoveries in Jerusalem reportedly “confirm an ancient map of Jerusalem.”  Tomorrow morning a press conference will be held at Jaffa Gate.  Until then, you can try to guess what they found.  I have my own prediction.
