Bab Edh-Dhra / Sodom and Gomorrah?

Located on the Eastern shore of the Dead Sea, the mysterious site of Bab Edh-Dhra contains thousands (!) of tombs from the Early Bronze age. 

In many one can still find many pottery shards of offerings that were placed in the tombs.

Believed to be associates with the Biblical stories of Sodom and Gomorrah, the site provides an important understanding to how Biblical narratives developed.
