Early Explorers of the Har Habayis
The main archeological explorations of the Har Habayis were between the years 1850-1900. Since after the six-day war, excavations were made outside the walls, but no excavations were done inside the walls, and the main information we have about it comes from these early archeologists. In this post, I will give some details about some of these archeologists.
I have added the first chapter of a description of the First Beis Hamikdash.

Hashem said to Yechezkel, "Its reading in the Torah is as great as its building. Go and say it to them, and they will occupy themselves to read the form of it in the Torah. And in reward for its reading, that they occupy themselves to read about it, I count it for them as if they were occupied with the building of it. (Tanchuma tzav 14)
