Tut's Tomb and the Acra Fortress

With Clyde Billington

The two hottest stories in archaeology right now are: the search for additional rooms in the tomb of King Tutankhamun (possibly the tomb of Nefertiti or some other pharaoh), and the discovery of the Hellenistic fortress known as the Acra, right outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. On this program, professor Clyde Billington (my co-editor on ARTIFAX magazine) brings our listeners up-to-date on what's happening with these two stories and supplies some background information to help explain their significance and their connection to biblical archaeology.

Temple Mount Theories, Hezekiah’s Pool, and Tel Shikmona

With Prof. Keith Schoville

Another round-up of the latest news in Biblical Archaeology: a Temple Mount theory from Israel Finkelstein (and a hush-hush report from the Israeli Comptroller’s office), The Acra Fortress, Hezekiah’s Pool is not the pool at the end of Hezekiah’s Tunnel, and Tel Shikmona just might have the most perfect four-room house discovered by Israeli archaeologists twice.
