With Clyde Billington
It’s catch-up time once again on The Book & The Spade as we review items from the news digest of the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine that haven’t been discussed on the radio program yet. Professor Billington, my ARTIFAX co-editor, discusses a large Late Bronze temple excavated this past year at Tel Burna in the Shephelah region. Then we discuss new information on animal sacrifices at the Early Bronze Age temple being excavated at Megiddo, “the most monumental single structure uncovered so far from the Early Bronze Age in the Levant.” And finally, a few words about the most exciting excavation currently underway, the excavation of a massive tomb in northern Greece from the time of Alexander the Great.
With Prof. Clyde Billington
The tombs located in the Kidron Valley and the Hinnom Valley around the Old City of Jerusalem have all been surveyed but many have not been given detailed scrutiny. On this program, we look at the details about one particular tomb, as reported in the January-February 2013 issue of Biblical Archaeology Review.
