The Biblical Edomites Were Real
Many scholars have argued that the ancient Edomites who interacted with the Israel of kings David and Solomon were not real. But recent evidence uncovered through excavations and research at Khirbat en-Nahas in Jordan under the direction of Professor Thomas Levy of the University of California, San Diego, show massive 10th Century B.C. fortifications and copper production facilities attributed to the Edomites. The facilities were determined to have been active during the period of the United Monarchy (the reigns of kings David and Solomon).
