Israeli archaeologist claims to have ‘found King David’s citadel’

Washington, May 5: An Israeli archaeologist has claimed that he has found the legendary citadel captured by King David in his conquest of Jerusalem.

The finding of the citadel by archaeologist Eli Shukron has rekindled a longstanding debate about using the Bible as a field guide to identifying ancient ruins, the Washington Times reported.

However, the new claim has been extensively criticised as the legendary biblical king, who is revered in Jewish religious tradition for establishing Jerusalem as its central holy city, has long eluded historians looking for clear-cut evidence of his existence and reign. (ANI)
