The Friends of the Israel Antiquities Authority

With Emily Master

Many of the archaeologists we talk with and talk about are connected to the Israel Antiquities Authority, and many of the excavations we discuss are connected to the Israel Antiquities Authority. So when I found out about this organization, I wanted to learn more. As their website says, “The Friends of the Israel Antiquities Authority is a U.S. based 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to raise awareness and provide financial support to the Israel Antiquities Authority through the promotion of archaeological research, initiation of exhibitions outside of Israel, and sponsorship of activities that share the antiquities and heritage of the Holy Land with as many people as possible.”

Excavations Plans for 2018

With John DeLancey

An annual tradition on TB&TS is our review of planned excavations for the upcoming year, to give our listeners the broad overview of what’s happening in Biblical Archaeology. This year I’m inviting John DeLancey back on the program for this discussion, since we will be visiting many of these sites during our 2018 TB&TS Holyland Archaeological Adventure Tour coming up in May. John has lived and studied in Israel and has visited many of these sites on the more than 50 tours he’s led to Israel; he’s also excavated as a volunteer at some of these sites. The digs we are discussing are, for the most part, the institutional excavations planned by various educational institutions and the Israel Antiquities Authority, but we also throw in a comment or two about salvage excavations, another part of the picture.
