Important Archaeological Finds—- Do Tel

650 lines of cuneiform text, recording Esarhaddon’s vassal treaty!
This really is important for biblical studies, Deuteronomy especially, but any other discussions of Israel’s covenant as well.
Tell Tayinat is in southeastern Turkey.

Kudos to Bill Arnold for this one.

    BW3,
    Apart from the obvious dating of a supposed ancient item, what process and how accurate are the dating systems used, in our day and age?
    If you have a good book reference, it would suffice.
    Peace,
    Eric.

    Ben,
    Does this find have any impact on the Documentary Hypothesis?

    Thanks
    Jerry
