Carbon 14 Dating + Sepphoris and Tiberias

With Clyde Billington

Reviewing more reports from the summer issue of ARTIFAX magazine, we discuss research into the accuracy of Carbon-14 dating, and significant questions that have been raised. We also discuss the discovery of an underground winepress at Sepphoris and a Jewish burial cave from Tiberias, the two cities thata served as the capitals of the Galilee during the time of Jesus. And finally, brief mentions of a report that the government of Israel is going to invest $140 million in archaeology to benefit tourism, and an archaeological fraternity has been formed at George Washington University.
