|King David's palace|
(Scroll down for video) A huge palace belonging to King David was discovered in Israel, according to a statement released by Israeli archaeologist.
Two large structures that are believed to have been a part of the palace of King David, have been unearthed by archaeologists in Jerusalem.
Over the past year, archaeologists have excavated a site that they believe is the fortified Biblical city of Shaarayim in Judea, where David killed Goliath, as described in the Bible.
Two archeologists, professor Yossi Garfinkel, of the Hebrew University and Saar Ganor, said that the ruins are the best evidence so far documenting the fortress city of King David.
They said this is irrefutable proof of the existence of a central authority in Judah in the time of King David.
Garfinkel and Ganor identified a structure as the house of King David and the other as a huge warehouse.
They are the two largest buildings known to have existed in the tenth century BC in Jerusalem.
Meanwhile, the Israel Antiquities Authority, or IAA, said that they are sure that the site can be attributed to the reign of King David.
Hundreds of artifacts, including stone tools, pottery vessels, seals and religious objects typical of the era, were found on the site.
The excavations were completed on Friday.
