This aerial picture shows what the excavators say are King David’s palace and a Byzantine-era farmhouse.

It’s funny how so many relics have those little handles on them, and on both sides.

I believe David reigned 40 years. Difficult to know how they can pinpoint the find to that narrow a time frame. How do they know it wasn’t the palace of Solomon, rehoboam, or for that matter Saul?

The canaanite theory sounds like a desperate attempt though to deflect it from the possibility of a Davidic king...which it very well could be.

Fascinating story...thanks.

King David’s palace, possibly. more than your average fixer-upper.
