This article is from ScienceDaily (Feb. 22, 2010) but I read about it first in the latest issue of National Geographic Magazine. (December 2010) A section of an ancient city wall of Jerusalem from the tenth century B.C.E. - possibly built by King Solomon - has been revealed in archaeological excavations directed by Dr. Eilat Mazar and conducted under the auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Archaeology is not my forte but I found it supported my understanding of history - that Solomon’s reign was from 970BC to 930BC. People told me there was no extra-biblical evidence of his or David’s reign. Well, now there is it seems. Mind you, the old “no such person” brigade are getting a bit miffed about it.
