Gezer Water System, part 2

With Prof. Dan Warner

In recent weeks we’ve covered the excavations around Gezer’s Iron Age gate and the survey excavation that has turned up new Gezer boundary stones. But there is a third excavation currently underway at Gezer, the water system. The Gezer water system is somewhat like those discovered at Hazor, Megiddo, and Beersheva, which we have visited on recent tours. Except that it appears to be much older and much larger. It’s a fascinating excavation. Dan Warner, professor of Old Testament and Archaeology at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, is the co-director of the excavation. He fills us in on what’s been revealed in the first seasons of excavation, and what he anticipates in the year ahead.

Gezer Boundary Stones, part 2

With Prof. Eric Mitchell

Survey archaeology catalogs the surface features around an archaeological site. In order to understand the context of a site, surveys are key. Such is the case at Tel Gezer, an important biblical site that was first excavated over a century ago. Now there are excavations going on in the Gezer water system, and around the Iron Age gate, and there’s a detailed survey around Gezer. In this program we continue a discussion with Prof. Eric Mitchell, of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, about how survey archaeology is done and what they found at Tel Gezer this summer.
