King David's Palace possibly found

A potential find of vast historical significance.

As reported in The Washington Post: A Dig Into Jerusalem's Past Fuels Present-Day Debates:
Israeli archaeologist Eilat Mazar believes the evidence she has uncovered during months of excavation and biblical comparison points to an extraordinary discovery.

She believes she has found the palace of King David, the poet-warrior who the Bible says consolidated the ancient Jewish kingdom around the 10th century B.C. and expanded its borders to encompass the Land of Israel.

If corroborative evidence is found confirming that this is King David's Palace, this could literally be the find of the century.
