    Ceramic evidence indicates occupation of the City of David, within present-day Jerusalem, as far back as the Copper Age (c. 4th millennium BCE),[14][53] with evidence of a permanent settlement during the early Bronze Age (c. 3000–2800 BCE).[53][54] The Execration Texts (c. 19th century BCE), which refer to a city called Roshlamem or Rosh-ramen[53] and the Amarna letters (c. 14th century BCE) may be the earliest mention of the city.[55][56] Some archaeologists, including Kathleen Kenyon, believe Jerusalem[57] as a city was founded by Northwest Semitic people with organized settlements from around 2600 BCE. According to Jewish tradition, the city was founded by Shem and Eber, ancestors of Abraham. In the biblical account, Jerusalem ("Salem") when first mentioned is ruled by Melchizedek, an ally of Abraham (identified with Shem in legend). Later, in the time of Joshua, Jerusalem lay within territory allocated to the tribe of Benjamin (Joshua 18:28), but continued to be under the independent control of the Jebusites until it was conquered by David and made into the capital of the united Kingdom of Israel (c. 11th century BCE).[58][59][v] Recent excavations of a Large Stone Structure and a nearby Stepped Stone Structure are widely believed[by whom?] to be the remains of King David's palace.
