Here, we report on the complete stratigraphic sequence at KEN from 2006 dated with a suite of 22 high-precision radiocarbon measurements and artifact data.
The new radiocarbon dates push back by 2 centuries the accepted IA chronology of Edom.The largest site is KEN (≈10 hectares) with 100 buildings visible on the site surface, including one of the largest IA Levantine desert fortresses (Fig. KEN was first systematically mapped by Glueck in the early 1930s (13) and identified as the center of Solomon's mining activities.It was initially sampled by the German Mining Museum (GMM) in the early 1990s (14).The methodologies applied to the historical IA archaeology of the Levant have implications for other parts of the world where sacred and historical texts interface with the material record.(1), asserting that he had discovered King Solomon's mines in the Faynan district (the northern part of biblical Edom), ≈50 km south of the Dead Sea in what is now southern Jordan.
