Shiloh's Archaeology in the News - in 1929

April 10, 1929

Important Archaeological Find in Palestine

Jerusalem, Apr. 9 (JTA) –

The site of the ancient sanctuary of the Israelites at Shiloh, which preceded the erection of the Solomonic Temple, is believed to have been discovered in the excavations of a Danish expedition excavating at Seilun.

The expedition discovered the remains of a Byzantine church. By its simple character it proves the antiquity of the tradition that Seilun is identical with the Biblical Shiloh.

And 84 years later, we're still excavating that church.

And the news is:

Well, almost that's how it happened.
