Background Information on Timna Park in the Holy Land

 

In Timna Park the history of ancient Israel and beyond comes to life. The area contains probably the oldest copper mine in the world, which was in use during King Solomon's time until a generation ago. The mining produced considerable wealth since copper was central in ancient metal production and it influenced political developments. The tapping in Timna left behind more than 10 000 mine holes which can be seen today together with Solomon's Pillars, rock art, temples and jewellery.
