The internet didn't exist in its present form when I began writing The Deeper Song so I didn't use it for research. But here are some interesting sites about Jerusalem and the time of Solomon.
As everyone is aware, Jerusalem is the heart of several of the world's religions. This site explains much about the history and religious and archeological studies of the city, including information on Solomon's temple, which is mentioned in The Deeper Song.
These photos of modern day Jerusalem give a sense of what the ancient city was like as well. ()
