Jerusalem Seal and Podium

With Clyde Billington

From the middle of the piles of dirt discarded from a controversial building project on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, a 10-year old Russian boy recovered an ancient seal from the time of King David. This discovery, reported by the Temple Mount Sifting Project, is one of the news items included in the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine, discussed on this program with my ARTIFAX co-editor, professor Clyde Billington. In addition to this 3,000-year old seal, our program covers the recently announced discovery of a podium that was built alongside the recently excavated street that led from the Pool of Siloam up to the Temple Mount. The purpose of the podium is an archaeological mystery.
