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.

Visiting the Land of the Bible

With John DeLancey

An interview with Rev. Dr. John DeLancey, co-leader of our Israel tour, at the end of our 2015 Book & The Spade Holyland study tour. The tour took place as we lingered outside the Garden Tomb in East Jerusalem, and we discussed his perspective on visiting the Holyland.

Jerusalem Cardo and Samaritan Inn

With Prof. Keith Schoville

On our last Holyland Study Tour in 2008 we saw some excavations going on along the western edge of the Western Wall Plaza. We had already had reports of discoveries in that area and finally we have a report on the results of the excavation in the January-February issue of Biblical Archaeology Review. So we discussed the article on this week’s program, along with two more articles in the latest issue: the story of the Good Samaritan Inn Mosaic Museum, and possible evidence for Israel in Egypt that predates the Merneptah stele (More on that to come in the weeks ahead).

Churches of the Holyland

With Tikva Levine

For the Christmas and Hanukkah season we’ve reached into the archives and retrieved a program that came out of our 1994 Book & The Spade Holyland tour. It’s a quick visit to some of the most well known churches in the Holyland, churches at locations associated with the life of Jesus Christ. Our tour guide, archaeologist Tikva Levine, shares information on the historical background of these churches.
