Discoveries from the 10th Century BCE

The tenth century BCE, the period of King David according to the Bible, has so far eluded archaeologists.  This may be about to change, however, since archaeologists at Khirbet Qeiyafa say they have uncovered olive pits and inscriped pottery from that period.  Scholars are already debating the significance (or lack thereof) of these discoveries, but excavation at the site is far from done.

The New York Times has this story.  UPDATE: A critque of the article is on BiblePlaces Blog.
