Evidence of Babylonian Destruction Found in Jerusalem

Israel’s Antiquities Authority last month announced the discovery of evidence of the first Babylonian destruction, according to Aleteia.  The items uncovered by archeologists at Jerusalem’s City of David site include broken jars, charred wood, grape seeds, and fish bones and scales.  “These findings depict the affluence and character of Jerusalem, capital of the Judean Kingdom, and are mesmerizing proof of the city’s demise at the hands of the Babylonians,” the Antiquities Authority says on its Web site.
