King Solomon’s Mine Discovered?


From the Biblical Archeological Review
October 29, 2008

According to legend, King Solomon was the greatest ancient ruler of Israel, the builder of the First Temple, and the owner of mines that were filled with gold and diamonds. While some scholars have recently questioned the existence of King Solomon as well as his mythical mines, radiocarbon dates from an ancient copper smelting plant in Jordan have shed some new light on the debate. Located at the ancient site of Khirbat en-Nahas (“ruins of copper” in Arabic) approximately 30 miles south of the Dead Sea, the copper smelting facility has yielded radiocarbon dates from the 10th century B.C., which places it firmly within the traditional timeline of King Solomon.

Hello Rick. I finally found your home.

I'm responding here to the post you made in response the to CNN report I posted on your other board.

You can read it here.

As I said there, I posted the whole story in case CNN wipe it out on their server. It is indeed a very exciting find and opens the door to a whole lot of new research.

Please let me know if you find out anything more about this.

And BTW, I'll put this board on Anything Goes' favourites of 2008 list of nominees. The first poll is open, please come over and cast a vote in our Polls Forum.
