Smashed Pharaoh Statue Head from Hazor

With Clyde Billington

More news stories from the archaeology news digests of the autumn issue of ARTIFAX magazine, including information on the discovery of the smashed head from a statue of an Egyptian king of the Old Kingdom period that somehow found itself to an archaeological level dated 1,00 years later, at the Canaanite city of Hazor. Other news stories include the discovery of a possible Canaanite Temple at Tel Burna (believed to be the Old Testament city of Libnah), the discovery of Hellenistic Greek temple at Gadara (overlooking the Sea of Galilee), and a complaint about the city of Tiberias, on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee.

Ordinary People Discoveries

With Clyde Billington

A farmer, a school boy, a school girl, two scuba divers…these are ordinary people who have made major discoveries in biblical archaeology in the last week, or the last few months. A lady walking with some friends from a kibbutz discovered a gold Roman coin (see photo); only two such coins are known to exist and the other one is in the British Museum.
