Archaeologists report the finding of King David's palace

  • Archaeologists said that the ruins near Jerusalem excavated recently mark the closest they have gone to uncovering the palace of King David. Some structures have been found after digging and one of them is said to be the King’s palace and the other could possibly be a storage room used to hold taxes. Fox News reports this as being proof of the existence of central authority in Judah during the time of King David.

    According to Jerusalem Post, this is the only site where organic material has been found. The site was called Shaarayim, which means “two gates” and its location seems appropriate for royalty.
