Thomas Levy of the University of California San Diego, who led the research, said carbon dating placed copper production at Khirbat en-Nahas (Arabic for 'Ruins of copper") in the 10th century -- in line with the biblical narrative of Solomon's rule.

"We can't believe everything ancient writings tell us," Levy said in a university statement. "But this research represents a confluence between the archaeological and scientific data and the Bible."

Khirbat en-Nahas is an arid region south of the Dead Sea, in Jordan's Faynan district. The Old Testament identifies the area with the Kingdom of Edom.

As early as the 1930s, archaeologists linked the site to the Edomite kingdom, but some of those claims were dismissed in subsequent years.

"Now ... we have evidence that complex societies were indeed active in 10th and 9th centuries BCE and that brings us back to the debate about the historicity of the Hebrew Bible narratives related to this period," Levy said.

Заброшенные медные рудники в южной Иордании датируются радиоуглеродным методом 10-м в. до н.э., куда традиционно помещают царя Соломона. Рудники приписывают царству Эдом, что "возвращает нас к дебатам об историчности рассказов еврейской Библии, относящихся к этому периоду" - сказал Томас Леви из ун-та Калифорнии (Сан-Диего), рук-ль проекта.
