    If proper archeaology was conducted in Jerusalem and not the political kind led by Elad and Ateret Cohanim you'd be quite against any kind of digging since digs run by the Antiquities Authority have largely led many Israeli historians to the conclusion that the Bible is a well-preserved mythology. There is no evidence of Solomon in Jerusalem and even less evidence of King David contrary to the so-called "King David's Archaeological Park" run by Elad, which propagates Bible mythologies as if they were facts. I even argued with a guide who told me an allegedly 1300-year old tunnel had been constructed with steel tools as was written in the Bible; I told him the iron age had barely begun and that nobody used steel and it is doubtful if the Israelites had control of iron tools at that time. Well everyone there screamed a few passages of Scriptures at me and my brother told me to shut up because they were giving him a headache. My point is, when the truth is revealed from archaeology in Jerusalem without political or religious interference, you are going to be sorely disappointed
