The Oriental Institute of Chicago, during excavations near Samaria, found the ruins of a temple built to Ashertoreth that stood during the reign of king Ahab. Near the site were found jars that contained the remains of infants who had been sacrificed in this horrible temple.
This find verifies that Baal & Asherah worship was common in Samaria at the time of Jezebel. 1Kings 18:19 mentions that Jezebel surrounded herself with the prophets of Baal and the prophets of Asherah.
A seal was also found which may have once belonged to Jezebel. The seal is inscribed with the letters "JZBL." According to the Bible, Jezebel was quite at home with sealing documents with a seal. 1Kings 21:8 says: "And she wrote letters in Ahab's name, sealed them with his seal."
