What they found was evidence for a 500-year drought that started around 8,300 years ago. In a press release, ... That was the first of three droughts, and the third one is where things get interesting. It happened around 4,000 to 3,700 years ago, a time that coincides with the story of Joseph as told in the Book of Genesis.
