Hey ATS this is a very interesting find. I hope it is the correct forum this time. It is current and old. Biblical and all that stuff too. With all that's going on in the world Today,here is a glimpse of the Holy land of long ago.
Most are very familiar with the bible and should be able to relate.
The best ljb

It is my hope that this thread can remain here.
At least for a bit. It has way more meaning in our contemporary world than jut archeology. Although it is a fitting thread for Ancient and Lost Civilizations as well.
thank you ljb

OP, please put some clip of info about this topic, i am reading it, (about a quarter done) and still don't really know what the big fuss is all about


Here's the guts


Located approximately 30 km. southwest of Jerusalem in the valley of Elah, Khirbet Qeiyafa was a border city of the Kingdom of Judah opposite the Philistine city of Gath. The city, which was dated by 10 radiometric measurements (14C) done at Oxford University on burned olive pits, existed for a short period of time between ca. 1020 to 980 BCE, and was violently destroyed. The biblical tradition presents the people of Israel as conducting a cult different from all other nations of the ancient Near East by being monotheistic and an-iconic (banning human or animal figures). However, it is not clear when these practices were formulated, if indeed during the time of the monarchy (10-6th centuries BC), or only later, in the Persian or Hellenistic eras. The absence of cultic images of humans or animals in the three shrines provides evidence that the inhabitants of the place practiced a different cult than that of the Canaanites or the Philistines, observing a ban on graven images. The findings at Khirbet Qeiyafa also indicate that an elaborate architectural style had developed as early as the time of King David. Such construction is typical of royal activities, thus indicating that state formation, the establishment of an elite, social level and urbanism in the region existed in the days of the early kings of Israel. These finds strengthen the historicity of the biblical tradition and its architectural description of the Palace and Temple of Solomon.

Gosh, your Avatar name is apropos!
Hi Jor.
I think what I gather is that they found evidence of a cult that differed from the norm.
I think you need to read it all. Authors are very crafty these days.
Save the best for last lol
I hope your reading is not for naught.
Cheers ljb

It basicly saids , or what they are trying to say (horrible writing) is that they found a pre king david tribe (cusp of king david) and they suggest that this tribe was monotheistic, because their were no animal or god figures. That is what I got out of it
