Charles Warren

Warren’s drawing. Charles Warren, the great 19th-century explorer of Jerusalem, produced this section drawing of the Temple Mount’s northeastern tower, which appears at upper left, and the area to the north, including the Pool of Israel. The drawing shows this area all the way down to bedrock, indicated by a thick hatched line. Jacobson took Warren’s notation, “possible termination of Old Wall with marginal drafts” (at center in the drawing) as an indication that the northern wall reached the eastern wall at this point. But Ritmeyer asserts that Warren was simply referring to the preserved top of the eastern wall, not to its northern end (right).
