King David-Era Palace Found in Israel,

3 posts in this topic

Archaeologists say they've uncovered two royal buildings from Israel's biblical past, including a palace suspected to have belonged to King David.

Two archaeological finds, the Tel Dan Stele and the Mesha Stele, have direct bearing on the question of the existence of a historical David. The first of these is an Aramean victory stele (inscribed stone) discovered in 1993 at Tel Dan and dated c. 850–835 BCE: it contains the phrase ביתדוד (bytdwd), and the reading "House of David" for this "is now widely accepted". [19] The Mesha Stele from Moab, dating from approximately the same period, may also contain the name David in line 12, where the interpretation is uncertain, and in line 31, where one destroyed letter must be supplied.[20]

If the David (king or not) is ever to be found it will not be in J'lem but in Samaria. J'lem was a two cow kingdom until the Assyrians took over Samaria in the 7th century.

Besides that, there is already a thread with this content in the Archeology section.
