This could be the most important archaeological discovery in the history of mankind. The lost Biblical city would represent an unique monument of the Bronze Age, and its greatness and wealth. This discovery could also help us to better understand how city-states used to function in period from 3500 to 1540 years B.C.
Biblical city of sin archaeological evidence
Head of the expedition, popular archaeologist, professor Steve Collins from the Trinity University of New Mexico, believes that after more than a decade of exploring in Tal el-Hammam in Jordan, the team finally managed to find archaeological evidence that "Biblical city of sin" actually exists.
Collins and his team started to work on this site in 2005, and until now, they didn't found much evidence about the Bronze age in that area. Even the majority of archaeological maps from this region had a huge 'holes,' and lack of information. And now, Collins' expedition have discovered the greatest city-state of the Bronze Age.
Collins addressed the significance of this discovery: ”The archaeological team unearthed a gold mine of ancient monumental structures and artifacts that are revealing a massive Bronze Age city-state that dominated the region of Jordan’s southern Jordan Valley, even during a time when many other great cities of the ‘Holy Land’ region were either abandoned or in serious decline,”
Sodom and Gomorrah
Sodom and Gomorrah were centers of sin and fornication of the ancient world. Cities represented the horror which would happen if the entire population follow after their own lust, which is probably the the most notorious act against God. For the long time, the cities were only mentioned in stories and books, and were considered mythical, but now, after this extremely important discovery, the evidence of the actual existence have been found, and that could indeed be one of the most important discoveries in human history. People believed that Sodom was completely destroyed (by God, according to the legend), but prof. Collins proved them wrong, when he discovered the remains of the city. #News
