The amateur archaeologists out there will be intrigued to know that one of the fabled mines of King Solomon has been discovered in modern-day Jordan. The huge copper mine—created in the 10th century B.C., when Solomon ruled over the ancient Hebrews, according to the Bible—was found in a desolate area south of the Dead Sea known in the Old Testament as the Kingdom of Edom. One academic tells The Daily Mail: “We can’t believe everything ancient writings tell us. But this research represents a confluence between the archaeological and scientific data and the Bible.” Bonus: the mine is visible from Google Earth.
