In recent times, excavations have been carried out at Shiloh. Shiloh is an extremely significant area mention in scripture as we will see.
Scott Stripling, one archaeologist working in this area holds a Bible in one hand and a shovel in the other as he speaks with a reporter from the Jerusalem Post and says:
“The Bible and other ancient religious texts is what has driven archaeology in this region,” said Stripling, director of excavations at ancient Shiloh and head of the Associates for Biblical Research. “We have to recognize the validity of the Bible … I am comfortable with the biblical story—and now we have proof of that story, really.”
The latest example of that involves a horned altar mentioned in Scripture. The stone horn, one of the four corners of an ancient altar, as described in Kings, was found this summer in the field of ancient Shiloh.

“When the news reached Joab, who had conspired with Adonijah though not with Absalom, he fled to the tent of the Lord and took hold of the horns of the altar” (1 Kings 2:28).

The discovery is consistent with what Stripling expected to find in the fields of the ancient city where the tabernacle for the Ark of the Covenant once stood.

The site Stripling is excavating has been examined before, first by a Danish team in 1922. Between 1981-1984, Tel Aviv University Professor Israel Finkelstein discovered a large bone deposit that was dated to the Late Bronze Age (around 1483–1177 BC), which he said provided evidence of a Canaanite sacrificial system at Shiloh.

“These were kosher and young animals, many with signs of burn or butcher marks on them, and they were mostly from the right side of the animal,” Stripling explained. “This did not mean much to Finkelstein. For me it was Leviticus Chapter 7: The right side of the animal was the priest’s portion, which would have been consumed at Shiloh. It would have been sacrificed, eaten by the priest and the bones disposed.”

We watch with great interest!
