Biblical Babylonian artefacts find

Ancient Babylonian treasures unearthed on Mount Zion in Jerusalem
New archaeological evidence has been unearthed on Mount Zion in Jerusalem, which is being referred to as 'clear evidence' of the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem.  The ferocious attack is referred to in the Old Testament. Dr Shimon Gibson - the co-Director of the Mount Zion Excavation Project in Jerusalem - says the find includes rare fragments of gold and silver jewellry thought to come from Ancient Babylon.
