Timna, Beno Rothenberg, 1969 AD). Ramesside Copper Mines at Timna . The Middle White horizon in the carboniferous Nubian sandstone The mines. Ten camps of the Ramesside period, directly connected with copper smelting, were found in the Timna Valley, set up in a semi-circle west ofthe Timna massif. As only Site 2 was excavated it is impossible at present to establish detailed chronological data for these camps, apart from the fact that the pottery found on all of them indicates a Ramesside date as the general period for their operation.

The Timna Valley (תִּמְנָע) is located in southern Israel in the southwestern Arava/Arabah, approximately 30 kilometres (19 mi) north of the Gulf of Aqaba and the city of Eilat. The area is rich in copper ore and has been mined since the 5th millennium BCE. There is controversy whether the mines were active during the biblical united Kingdom of Israel and its second ruler, King Solomon.

Timna Valley – Egyptian Mines (Rothenberg). Beginning in 1959, and continuing through the early 2000s, Beno Rothenberg (1914-2012), an archaeologist from Tel Aviv University and the University of London, excavated many copper production sites in the Timna Valley, south of Wadi Faynan. These new dates fall squarely within the biblical timeframe for the United Monarchy, and indicate that the majority of the sites in the valley were not Egyptian

After more than 12 years of intensive archaeological research under the directorship of Dr Beno Rothenberg the full significance of Timna,Valley of the Biblical Copper Mines, is revealed. Timna lies near the northern tip of the Red Sea in the Arabah, about 19 miles north of the Gulf of Elat-Aquaba. It became apparent that the Timna Valley was a major centre of copper mining and processing over a period of 6000 years and excavations revealed various complete copper smelting installations from the earliest primitive beginnings in the 4th mil BCE to the sophisticated technology of Roman times.
