Two royal public buildings, the likes of which have not previously been found in the Kingdom of Judah of the 10th century BCE, were uncovered this past year by researchers of the Hebrew University and the Israel Antiquities Authority at Khirbet Qeiyafa – a fortified city in Judah dating to the time of King David and identified with the biblical city of Shaarayim.

One of the buildings is identified by the researchers – Prof. Yossi Garfinkel of the Hebrew University and Sa'ar Ganor of the Israel Antiquities Authority – as David’s palace, and the other structure served as an enormous royal storeroom.

The excavation, which was conducted over the past seven years, is now drawing to a close. According to Prof. Garfinkel and Sa'ar Ganor, “Khirbet Qeiyafa is the best example exposed to date of a fortified city from the time of King David. The southern part of a large palace that extended across an area of around 1,000 square meters (10,700 square feet) was revealed at the top of the city.


Very cool.

If a tree falls in a forest and you hear it, but your eyes are closed, how do you know it's not just fifty porcupines sliding down a hill?

Those are very rare. It says they found pottery. Those sometimes contain inscriptions.

Here is an interesting tablet found though.

Even if the Bible isn't true, plenty of it is still based on actual history.

Didn't you know? Jews in the future built a time machine, went back 3,000 years, and for the next 1,000 years built palaces, temples, fortresses, cities and wrote tablets, scrolls, etc, just to fool everyone from our time into thinking Jews actually lived in the Land of Israel. You didn't ACTUALLY think Jews lived in the Land of Israel, did you?

Balla, do you have some kind of browser plugin that alerts you whenever a Judaism- or Israel-related topic is posted here or on the Politics board?

I seriously don't see you participating in or creating topics of any other subject.
