Ancient Arrowheads From The Babylonian Destruction of Jerusalem Discovered
Archaeologists have uncovered evidence of the bloody Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem in the sixth century BCE. Experts digging in an excavation site at Jerusalem’s Mount Zion run by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte found layers of ash and arrowheads, as well as lamps, a gold and silver tassel or earring and pieces of ceramics from the Iron Age. The Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem took place in 587 and 586 B.C. The nature of the artifacts and the layer of ash point to a bloody chapter in the city’s history.
Have a blessed Christmas and New Year.
