Title: King David's Palace & Other Related Archaeological Evidence
Post by: Peter on January 16, 2012, 05:05:25 AM
Just received a comment on a YouTube channel from an atheist that claimed there was not a scrap of archaeological evidence of David or Solomon, and it brought to mind a pretty interesting show I saw on Nova/PBS, and figuring he was liberal thought the label might speak to him more effectively than most sources.

"Israeli Archaeologist Believes He’s Found a Biblical Site Linked to King David

In the Second Book of Samuel, it is written that King David captured Jerusalem, then under Jebusite control, using a water shaft to penetrate the city’s defenses.

Now, an Israeli archaeologist believes he has uncovered the water tunnel as well as King David’s legendary citadel, the Associated Press reported.

Biblical archaeologist Eli Shukron, formerly with the Israel Antiquities Authority, told the AP that his dig uncovered a narrow shaft where water flowed and where those living in Jerusalem came to draw water. The path of the tunnel led to the wall surrounding the city, the point where he believes David’s forces gained access to Jerusalem.

Shukron told the AP that in his estimation no other structure in the area matches the citadel that David captured in his conquest."
