ARCHAEOLOGISTS believe they have made the historic discovery of the ruins of the Biblical city of Sodom – supposedly destroyed by God as punishments for its inhabitants’ sins.
A decade of digs at the site to the east of Jordan have established the remains of a large Bronze Age city, that experts suspect is Sodom.

According to the Bible, the city was destroyed alongside Gomorrah, as a judgement from God because of its residents involvement in vice and homosexuality which were considered deviant at the time.

A large amount of the city has now been revealed after 10 years, including defences and many plazas connected by roads, and it appears it was abandoned for 700 years before being reoccupied.
