That's why the house of the German Archaeological Institute, I arrived with optimism, looking forward to meeting with Achim Krekelerom. Strong and friendly man of about thirty-five, who spoke good English, examining fragments of ancient papyrus, which, he explained, should be treated with great caution because they are terribly fragile. - And of these papyri here you get proof of the existence of the Jewish temple? - Yes. And its destruction. After 410 years BC. e. several letters were sent to Jerusalem, which reported about the incident and requested money and permission for its restoration.
