Newsflash: Old Pottery at Archaeological Site

In this case, though, it kind of matters, because the potsherd in question appears to have the oldest know fragments of Hebrew writing.  The words, barely decipherable, appear to be "judge," "slave" and "king."  

The important point is that only about 4% of the site has been excavated, so there could be a lot more where this came from.
