Inspired by the biblical account of the splendor of his temples and palaces adorned in glittering gold and copper, countless treasure-seekers have set off in search of King Solomon's mines. Yet to date, the evidence supporting the existence of Solomon's and other early kingdoms in the Bible has been highly controversial. In fact, there is so little physical evidence of the kings who ruled Israel and Edom that many contend that they are no more real than King Arthur.

Fascinating documentary looking at King Solomon, the scant archaeological and historical record of the man, and the possibility that a copper mining and refining site in the Dead Sea valley may have once been the source of his wealth. PBS can always be counted on for insightful work, and this one is no exception, giving us expert opinion, a thorough examination of the site and its surroundings, and a good look at the various theories into who the biblical man might have been.
