--  4,000-year-old wall found around oasis in Saudi Arabia

A giant wall dating back around 4,000 years was discovered surrounding an oasis in Saudi Arabia.
The wall was originally nine miles (14.5 kilometers) long and surrounded the Khaybar Oasis, located near the city of Al-’Ula. It was about 16 feet (5 m) high and 5.6 to 7.9 feet (1.7 to 2.4 m) thick, the team said in a statement.
The wall originally had 180 bastions, points projecting out of the fortification. Radiocarbon dating of charcoal remains found during excavations indicate that the wall dates to between 2250 and 1950 B.C., the team wrote in a paper published in the Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports.
