Some theories are strengthened: the ancient kings of Canaan really did live like, well, kings, and – just possibly – there is a grain of salt in that Noah story.

Sometimes archaeology becomes simply a way to touch history. There is nothing like a corroded 2,000-year old chisel found in rubble at the foot of the Western Wall to bring home that it was a man like us, with hands like ours who built the city and who evidently dropped his tool from on high and couldnt be bothered to go pick it up.
