With Clyde Billington
Discussing some of the items in the archaeology news digests in the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine, Professor Clyde Billington and I discuss the discovery of the Stone Rejected by the Builders in the western wall of the Temple Mount, the stone mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 21:42, quoting Psalm 118:22-23. We also report on the discovery of counting tokens used several millenia after writing and record keeping supposedly transitioned from the use of tokens to cuneiform. The story of the invention of writing is intertwined with the biblical story and the history of Christianity.
With Prof. Alan Millard
This is the second part of our 1988 interview with Professor Alan Millard, who is now emeritus professor of Hebrew and ancient Semitic languages at Liverpool University. The history of writing is an area of special interest for prof. Millard.
