The Canaanite Tunnel

Jess, Seth, and Hunter pick their way through subterranean Jerusalem. The path they are following is often called the “dry” tunnel to distinguish it from Hezekiah’s Tunnel or the “wet” tunnel.

It is likely that this underground passage was cut through the limestone beneath Old Jerusalem in the Middle Bronze Age (ca. 1800 BC). It was used to transport irrigation water from the Gihon spring to fields in the Kidron Valley.
