Recent News: Legio, Ecole Biblique Centennial, and the Tomb of the Kings

With Clyde Billington

Reviewing news digest items from the recently published winter issue of ARTIFAX, our Biblical Archaeology Newsmagazine, we first noted a video posted on our website at radioscribe.com that features a lecture by Matthew Adams on the excavations of Legio, the second century Roman fort at Megiddo. After four seasons, some intriguing discoveries have been made. We also discussed the centennial of Ecole Biblique, home of French archaeology in the Holyland; the reopening of the Tombs of the Kings, which aren’t actually tombs of kings but of a queen instead; and the reopening of the Temple Mount Sifting Project in Jerusalem.

Shiloh excavation director Scott Stripling, featured in our last two programs, also participated in a research project for the Shroud of Turin during a trip to Israel several months ago. The project involved limestone particles that have been found on the shroud, and a visit to the underground tombs at the Ecole Biblique, which are adjacent to the Garden Tomb.
