Jerusalem before the 8th century BCE

The lead of this article claims that significant construction activity in Jerusalem began in the 9th century BCE (Iron Age II), and by the 8th century BCE, the city had developed into the religious and administrative centre of the Kingdom of Judah. In support of these claims, the article cites Moore & Kelle (2011), who wrote that the archaeological studies up to their time seemed to support those conclusions. However, a more recent source, Sergi (2023), states that the most recent archaeological evidence indicates that monumental construction activity in Jerusalem had already begun in the 10th century BCE, and the city had developed into an administrative centre by the Iron Age IIA period (see pp. 187–201). I think the article should take this newer information into account. Potatín5 (talk) 13:46, 21 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
