Pollen Detectives at Ramat Rachel

With Patrick Geyer

Tel Aviv University archaeologists worked with an archaeobotanist to find ancient pollen preserved in the plaster of ancient walls, to determine what plants were planted in a royal garden at Ramat Rachel, the site of a palace of the Judean Kings from Hezekiah through the Hasmonean period. The second part of this program is a 1996 interview with palynologist Patrick Geyer of the University of San Diego, on how he does his pollen research at Bethsaida and other sites.
