Tel Burna, Central Jerusalem – Archaeologists are digging into a mound located in the mountains of central Israel. This mound has gone unexplored until recent curiosity made it a point of interest in 2009.
Specialists believe, according to geography and historical records, that Tel Burna could be the biblical location of Libnah, where the Israelites established a town in the Kingdom of Judah (read more about Libnah in Rose Then and Now Bible Atlas). Until recently, it was argued that Libnah could also be the modern-day Tel Zayit, but the discoveries revealed this week make stronger arguments for Tel Burna.
The excavations have unveiled a series of discoveries: vessels, seals, goblets, chalices, a 13th century BCE building, and fortification walls.
