The Ebla Tablets With The Eblaite Language Are Fascinating

Eblaite was an ancient language spoken in Syria, and although it's now extinct, the way it was discovered is interesting. It's also interesting how many languages were spoken in BCE.
Anyway, the Ebla tablets 'are a collection of as many as 1800 complete clay tablets, 4700 fragments and many thousand minor chips found in the palace archives of the ancient city of Ebla, Syria', according to the Biblical Archaeologist. An Italian Archaeologist discovered them in Tell Mardikh.
The tablets were discovered in a burned palace, and also contained the Sumerian language as well. They helped us discover a load of information about the Bronze Age.
It turns out that Ebla was a major trade center and had many imports and exports, including beer. In fact, it even had its own beer called Ebla.
Ebla also helped develop a sophisticated trade network system throughout Syria. And they have the first references to ancient peoples such as Canaanites and Lebanon. There was also speculation and research as to whether the tablets made references to the Bible.
That turned out to be a lot of nothing though - the general consensus is that the Ebla tablets don't have much of a connection to the Bible, if any at all.
