ARCHAEOLOGY: Naboth's Vineyard

"An archaeologist in Israel has shared an exciting new discovery that seems to validate the Bible’s
account of a man named Naboth and his ownership of a vineyard.
The Christian Post reports that Dr. Norma Franklin, one of the leaders of the Jezreel Expedition, confirmed that the Jezreel Valley was a wine-producing region, as the Bible says it is.
The Jezreel Expedition team used laser technology to analyze the region and found several wine and olive presses, as well as over 100 bottle-shaped pits carved into the stone of the region. Franklin believes these hewn-out imprints were used to store wine in ancient times.
This discovery confirms the Biblical account of Naboth and his vineyard in I Kings 21. There, the Bible tells the story of a man named Naboth who owned a vineyard. Israel’s king at the time, the wicked King Ahab, coveted Naboth’s beautiful vineyard and ended up having Naboth killed so he could take the vineyard for himself.
Although Franklin is not a believer, she acknowledged that the discovery does seem to validate the biblical account." BCN
And it came to pass after these things, that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard,
which was in Jezreel, hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria.
