Archaeology news: Biblical-era seal found in Jerusalem proves owner had 'elevated status'

0


Archaeologists unearthed the seal a few years ago at the City of David in the Jerusalem Walls National Park.

The Israeli national park covers parts of the ancient city and includes some of the most important archaeological sites in the whole country.

The IAA highlighted the discovery on Monday as the world celebrated International Women’s Day 2021.

In a Facebook post, the IAA said: “Who do you think is a strong woman? @tag her.”

The seal hails from the First Temple period – an estimated 957 to 697 BC – named after the Biblical First Temple built by King Solomon on top of Jerusalem’s holy Temple Mount.
