Well-preserved monumental temple discovered in Turkey





The discovery of a remarkably well-preserved monumental temple in Turkey - thought to be constructed during the time of King Solomon in the 10th/9th-centuries BCE - sheds light on the so-called Dark Age. Uncovered by the University of Toronto's Tayinat Archaeological Project (TAP) in the summer of 2008, the discovery casts doubt upon the traditional view that the transition from the Late Bronze Age to the Early Iron Age was violent, sudden and culturally disruptive.
