Israeli archaeologists recently uncovered a treasure trove of biblical-era pottery while digging in the City of David, the small area south of today’s Temple Mount that in the time of David and Solomon made up the entirety of Jerusalem.

The pottery, which was found near the Gihon Spring, dates back to at least 586 B.C., during the time of Jerusalem’s destruction at the hands of the Babylonians.

An partially-preserved inscription on one of the pots signifies that it was likely used in Temple sacrifices.
