The sins of the cities of the plain : Biblical City of Sodom Finally Uncovered in Jordan Valley?

Not so destroyed after all, Sodom appears to have been uncovered by US archaeologists in southern Jordan. The city, which – together with Gomorrah – is traditionally associated with vice, was supposed to be condemned to a fiery death by God for their sins.
The find, if confirmed, is of utmost importance for archaeology. The lost Biblical city is expected to be a monument to Bronze Age greatness and a treasure trove of knowledge on how city-states formed and lived in the period between 3500 and 1540 BC.
