The skeletal remains of seven horses have been uncovered under the 17th century Armenian Monastery in Jaffa, believed by Israeli archaeologists to be evidence of battles that were fought along the walls of the ancient port city in earlier periods, Israel's Antiquities Authority announced Tuesday. A series of supporting walls were also found buried underneath the sea-side monastery, indicating the locations of the northwestern borders of the city from the Hellenistic to the Ottoman periods.
