This is a nice article about archaeological finds, what caught my attention is the use of 586 BCE as the date for the destruction of Jerusalem.

According to biblical descriptions, in 586 BCE, the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar vanquished the Judaean king Zedekiah and razed his capital city, Jerusalem. The Babylonian captain of the guard Nebuzaradan was dispatched into the city, where, as told in the Book of Jeremiah, he “burned the house of the Lord, and the king’s house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, even every great man’s house, burned he with fire.”

Thank for posting this article.  Very interesting.   The dating is not an issue with me, carbon date calibrating is not an exact science but shows an approximate timeframe.  The evidence of  multi-worship is far more interesting and consistent with the Biblical accounts as to why Jerusalem was destroyed.
