Lachish Gate Shrine & New IAA Archaeology Campus

With Clyde Billington

A second look at some of the top archaeology stories from the Autumn 2016 issue of ARTIFAX magazine with co-editor Clyde Billington. On this program we discuss the recently renewed excavations at Lachish and the discovery of a gate shrine which appears to have been permanently desecrated by the installation of a toilet. We also discuss the Israel Antiquities Authority's new archaeology campus in Jerusalem, as well as the reopening of the restored Mamertine Prison in Rome, where Peter and Paul may have been held.

Personal Reflections

With Gordon Govier

After 31 years hosting The Book & The Spade I finally took the chance to share some personal reflections on Biblical Archaeology. Earlier this year, following a couple of articles I wrote for Christianity Today, some radio news colleagues invited me to come on their radio programs to talk about Biblical Archaeology. So this week's program is constructed from edited portions of Bill Feltner's program, His People, and Keith Peter's interview program on Classics Radio.
