ARCHAEOLOGISTS have unearthed a huge palace in the ancient royal city of Gezer, Israel, which they are linking to the Biblical King Solomon.
The 3,000-year old ruins were found in the ancient city, which is situated between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. While the archaeologists behind the discovery were quick to stress evidence for who occupied the house is non-existent, there has been obvious links to King Solomon because of the timeframe. The building dates back to the 10th century BC which is when the legendary king – who according to the Bible – led Israel and is largely credited with being the driving force behind Israel becoming a Jewish state. Among the findings at the site included Philistine pottery, a goddess figurine known as Ashdod, several amulets and a baby’s rattle.
