The Walls of Jericho
Did the walls of Jericho Fall? This story has been described in the bible. The Israelites were successful after the seventh trip around the city on the seventh day, scripture tells us that the wall “fell down flat.”
20 So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that *the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
There is a great article on The Answers in Genesis Website that addresses the archeological proof of this biblical story. You may also read more about what happened in the book of Joshua.
