King Size Controversy: Evaluating the extent of David’s kingdom.

The extent of the kingdom of Judah has been in the limelight since the discovery of Khirbet Qeiyafa in the Elah Valley in Israel in 2007. Archaeologists at this site have proclaimed that it is directly linked to David’s kingdom and that it proves the strength and size of Judah in the Iron Age.
This lecture will examine the archaeological record focusing on the strength the Kingdom of Judah in the 10th century BCE and introduce theories that challenge Judah’s political and economic development and strength in this period.
