Khirbet el-Maqatir, 2015, part 2

With Scott Stripling

Originally begun to test a theory about the location of the city of Ai from Joshua 7-8, Khirbet el-Maqatir has now developed into a multi-dimensional site with remains from almost a half dozen eras. It's the largest excavation in Israel in terms of manpower. Again this year Scott Stripling fills us in on the discoveries and developments of their 3-week season, including another Egyptian scarab, for the third year in a row.
