A newly published study may lend unprecedented insights into the wardrobe of Israel’s ancient kings.

The study—headed by Tel Aviv University’s Dr. Erez Ben-Yosef and Dr. Naama Sukenik of the Israel Antiquities Authority, in collaboration with Bar-Ilan University—uncovered textiles colored with ancient plant dyes in Israel’s southern Timna Valley. The textiles were used during the time of Kings David and Solomon. 

“If we want to know what these kings wore, the only hints are in these textiles discovered in Timna,” Ben-Yosef told

The findings in the Timna Valley are the earliest evidence of advanced plant-based dyeing technology used in Israel and indicate that a complex biblical society, with an advanced ruling elite, dwelled in the

But for many of the Jewish kids who flocked to the Haight a half-century ago, there was something else — a search for spirituality and meaning they felt was absent in the synagogues of their parents.

Jews were a disproportionate part of the scene, with contemporaneous and current

The recent discovery of a previously invisible inscription on the back of an ancient pottery shard, that was on display at Jerusalem’s Israel Museum for over 50 years, has prompted Tel Aviv University researchers to consider what other hidden inscriptions may have been discarded during archaeological digs, before the availability of high-tech imaging.

 The ancient shard was uncovered in poor condition at the desert fortress of Arad in 1965 and dates back to 600 BC, before Judah’s Kingdom was
