3000 year old Hebrew text found

Archeologists are digging up a 3000-year-old city just 20 miles outside of Jerusalem where they found a piece of what appears to be the oldest known Hebrew text.

The fortress is from 10th century B.C., which the New York Times considers “the most controversial period in the biblical archeology.?

This find could reshape the views people hold of the time that David ruled the Israelites.

The piece of pottery, says Professor Yosef Garfinkel of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, is known as an ostracon.

CNN reports that the piece of pottery is six square inches and has five lines of text, divided by black lines.
