Ancient city found at Kana of the Galilee

I'm ready for some good news. Today the Jerusalem Post published the above photo of clay jars uncovered during excavations in the Israeli Arab village of Kfar Kana in the Lower Galilee. The city dates back to the Kingdom of Solomon 10 -9 BCB. The city was destroyed during the 9th century BCE and was re-inhabited by Jewish settlers in the Roman period in the 1st century CE (a.k.a AD). This city is known in the New Testament as the site where Jesus Christ performed his first miracle, turning water into wine at a Jewish wedding.
