      In the summer of 2010, NOVA and National Geographic embarked on two
      cutting-edge field investigations that illuminate the legend of Solomon
      and reveal the source of the great wealth that powered the first mighty
      biblical kingdoms. These groundbreaking expeditions expose important new
      clues buried in the pockmarked desert of Jordan, including ancient
      remnants of an industrial-scale copper mine and a 3,000-year-old message
      with the words "slave," "king," and "judge." "Quest for Solomon's Mines"
      premieres Tuesday, November 23rd at 8 PM ET/PT on PBS
      (www.pbs.org/nova/mines). You can watch a preview
      here:http://www.youtube.com/user/NOVAonline?feature=mhum#p/u/6/3p08CYUs63Y
      National Geographic magazine takes a closer look at the mines and the
      contentious field of Biblical archaeology in its December cover story,
      "The Search for King David," on newsstands November 30.

        The sphinx statues are inscribed with Nectanebo I's name and were
        found in the last sector of the Avenue of the Sphinxes, one of the
        most important archaeological and religious paths in Luxor, the site
        of the Ancient Egyptian city of Thebes.
