The archaeologist who found the site is Thomas Levy whom some of you may remember as the editor of the excellent book The Archaeology of Society in the Holy Land, 1995.  Unfortunately, he only found material back to the “10th century.”  This means it’s from the Iron Age.  From the New Courville perspective, Solomon lived during the Late Bronze Age 2b, so unless Levy has found LB2b material, we would have to regard it as a post-Solomonic mine.
