14th Century BC Clay Tablet found In Jerusalem

 A recent article tells of the archaeological find of a “tiny clay fragment -- dating from the 14th century BC”

And it is tiny, measuring 2 x 2.8 X 1 centimeters.

The writing on the tablet consists of “cuneiform symbols in ancient Akkadian”

But, even thought tiny, it is historically very significant because of its age.

The next ‘oldest’ such written record found in Jerusalem dates only to the 8th Century BC.
