Archeology in Jerusalem

Archeologists working in East Jerusalem recently made a find that has the experts stumped. The dig which is taking place in an area known as the City of David consists of three V shapes cut next to each other into the limestone floors of one of the rooms. There are several possible explanations: these markings could indicate the shapes might have accommodated a wooden structure inside them or they may have served a ritual function about 2,800 years ago. A clue may lie in the quest of Montague Parker who searched for the treasures of the lost Jewish Temple in Jerusalem between 1909 and 1911. A map used by him includes a similar V shape drawn in an undergorund channel not far away!
