The remains of two buildings thought to be the site of King David"s palace have been found in Jerusalem.The discovery was made at the site of what archaeologists believe to be the Judean city of Shaarayim where the Biblical clash between David and Goliath was said to have taken place. Some experts are skeptical however, questioning whether this is theactual site or if King David was even a king at all."The ruins are the best example to date of the uncovered fortress city of King David," said professors Yossi Garfinkel and Saar Ganor who lead the excavations.

"This is indisputable proof of the existence of a central authority in Judah during the time of King David." "Archaeologists in Jerusalem claim to have uncovered two large buildings fit fora king -- Biblical King David, that is."

More than five centuries of documents and manuscripts are to be preserved by placing them online.The Vatican"s library is packed full of historical texts and literary treasures dating back hundreds of years. The process of scanning more than 40 million pages however is no easy task thanks to bindings that disintegrate when opened and gold or silver illuminations that are particularly awkward to scan. "It is important to realize if there is gold or silver in a manuscript," said project leader LucianoAmmenti.

"That requires a very particular process because the light will be different."The effort to digitize the massive collection will ensure that the Vatican"s library is preserved for future generations with an estimated requirement of more than 43 petabytes of storage. "This is our dream, to give all the world access to our manuscripts," said Ammenti. "We start with the most delicate, the books that are in a critical situation for conservation." "The project, finally up and running a year after its announcement, uses an armada of equipmentto capture the vast range of pages amassed by the Vatican over five or six centuries into one of the world’s most valuable collection of books and manuscripts."

A mysterious stone structure has been discovered beneath the surface of Israel"s Sea of Galilee.Archaeologists remain perplexed by the nature and purpose of the structure which appears to consist of a large pile of cobbles and boulders weighing upwards of 60,000 tons. At 32ft high and 230ft across, the structure covers significantly more ground than Stonehenge and reaches higher than its tallest standing stones."Close inspection by scuba diving revealed that thestructure is made of basalt boulders up to 1 m (3.2 feet) long with no apparent construction pattern," said researchers.

"The boulders have natural faces with no signs of cutting or chiselling. Similarly, we did not find any sign of arrangement or walls that delineate this structure."The prevailing theory is that the structure was originally a cairn built on land and later submerged due to the rising water levels. Some researchers believe it could date back more than 4,000 years. "A giant "monumental" stonestructure discovered beneath the waters of the Sea of Galilee in Israel has archaeologists puzzled as to its purpose and even how long ago it was built."

An acclaimed underwater archaeologist has uncovered new evidence to suggest that it did.Robert Ballard and his team have been exploring the depths of the Black Sea off the coast of Turkey in an effort to locate traces of an ancient civilization that has been hidden since the time of Noah. Ballard maintains that the melt water from glaciers around 12,000 years ago would have caused a huge flood in the region, washing away everythingin its path.

It is thought that such an event could have been the inspiration behind the story of Noah in the Bible."Where I live in Connecticut was ice a mile above my house, all the way back to the North Pole, about 15 million kilometers, that"s a big ice cube," said Ballard. "But then it started to melt. The question is, was there a mother of all floods ?" The story of Noah"s Ark and the Great Flood is one of the most famous from the Bible, and now an acclaimed underwaterarchaeologist thinks he has found proof that the biblical flood was actually based on real events.
