King Solomon's Mines Discovered?

I haven't been enamored with CNN's reportage for quite some time, but today they are reporting that researchers may have discovered the fabled King Solomon's Mines.

See here.

Thomas Levy of the University of California San Diego, who led the research, said carbon dating placed copper production at Khirbat en-Nahas (Arabic for 'Ruins of copper") in the 10th century -- in line with the biblical narrative of Solomon's rule.

"We can't believe everything ancient writings tell us," Levy said in a university statement. "But this research represents a confluence between the archaeological and scientific data and the Bible."


Calling Allan Quatermain.

What I meant to say was I hope they FIND the Master's Word!
