(ORDO NEWS) — The arrowhead is made of bone. The find was found in the city of Kirya Gata (Israel). Archaeologists believe this is an arrowhead from a biblical battle. It is about the battle in which King Hazael attacked the Philistine Geth.
It is reported by Live Science.
According to the Hebrew Bible, King Azael was the ruler of the kingdom of Aram from 842 to 800 BC. The massive destruction at the site dates back to the 9th century BC. According to biblical legends, it was then that Hazael conquered the ancient city of Gath.
Investigations into the tip have shown that it has an impact crack. This means that it was broken as a result of the impact. This artifact took part in the battle. It belonged to the defenders of the city, who held the defense against the enemy’s army. The tip was produced in one of the city’s workshops. Now archaeologists hope to fully restore the events of those times and compare them with the biblical stories.
The workshop was discovered much earlier. She was located 300 meters from the place where the tip was found. The tips were made from the bones of cattle. The excavations have now resumed again to obtain more information about the city of Kirya Gata. Perhaps it will be possible to find new artifacts and valuable household items.
