Archaeology - And here Comes David & Solomon as Kings

Been informed:-

On Monday, March 5, 2012 at the California Museum of Ancient Art, Professor Thomas Levy from the University of California, San Diego will share his new discoveries and research in an illustrated lecture, "Quest for King Solomon's Mines: Cyber-Archaeology in Jordan's Desert." Recent excavations in Jordan's Faynan copper ore district document an industrial revolution dating to the 10th century BC - coinciding with the time of the early Hebrew kings and Egyptian pharaohs.

Were David and Solomon Rulers of an Ancient Kingdom or mere Tribal Chieftains?

The lecture will focus on discoveries at the largest copper production site in the eastern Mediterranean, Khirbat en-Nahas and provides data in support of the historicity of David and Solomon. Khirbat en-Nahas had a massive copper-smelting operation dating to the time of the early Hebrew kings, the Egyptian Pharaoh Shoshenq I, and the Edomite kingdom. High precision radiocarbon dating and new digital archaeology technologies were used to achieve as objective an approach as possible.

Faynan (perhaps Biblical Punon)
