Hezekiah's Seal and Iron-Age Farmhouse

With Clyde Billington

In this program we take a look at some of the news digest items from the Winter issue of ARTIFAX magazine that has just been published. The news items involve the discovery of a seal impression from King Hezekiah’s official seal (pictured), as well as the discovery of an Iron Age Farmhouse and a Byzantine monastery at Rosh Ha-‘Ayin (near Tel Aphek where I volunteered on an excavation in 1978), and the discovery of a Canaanite citadel at Nahariya, on the coast north of Akko.
