Mysterious Jerusalem Carvings Found
Archaeologists have uncovered three carvings in the stone floor of a room in the oldest part of Jerusalem, and they have no idea what they are.
The “V” shapes, discovered in a dig in the City of David, are like nothing else ever found in an Israeli excavation.
Based on the rubble found over them, archaeologists know they are at least as old as 800 B.C., but it’s possible they could date back as far as 3,000 B.C., which is the traditional period of David’s rule. It’s even possible they were there before David, and were carved by the original Canaanite residents of the hilltop village which later became Jerusalem.
The archaeologists in charge of the dig have posted photos of the mysterious shapes in hopes someone will offer a useful suggestion of their purpose. You can see them at the Yahoo! link above.
