Scientists have found the reason for the destruction of ancient cities

Ученые нашли причину гибели древних городовIt turned out that the settlements were wiped out because of a meteorite.

Earlier, on the north coast of the Dead Sea, there were five more cities, but by the end of the Bronze Age, major catastrophes destroyed the settlements on what is now Jordan. Experts have only now found out what killed people.

A decade ago, scientists found cuneiform Royal in the ruins of Nineveh, where some cities, such as Sodom and Gomorrah, were mentioned. As it turned out, the settlements were destroyed by a meteorite from the ground. It happened 4,000 years ago and the new city was built only six centuries ago.

The news of the new findings has been published by experts from Southwestern University Trinity (Albuquerque) in the publication "Science News". The scientists conducted a radiocarbon dating of the rock site, which revealed that all mud houses were demolished in no time. This can happen only at high temperatures. The only possible scenario – the fall of the meteorite.

Incidentally, in the Old Testament, Sodom and Gommory talk about destroying the rain of fire and sulfur. Supposedly God brought with it a catastrophe for the many sins of the inhabitants of these cities.
