Archeologists Uncover Ancient Administrative Center From First Temple Period

Workers of the Israel Antiquities Authority work to excavate a significant administrative storage center from the days of Kings Hezekiah and Menashe (8th century to middle of the 7th century BCE) uncovered near the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. More than 120 seal impressions stamped on jars were found in the excavations, showing evidence of tax collection in the period of the Judean monarchs in the First Temple Period.
