With Gabriel Barkay
In this continuation of the previous program's discussion, archaeologist Gabriel Barkay discusses recent archaeology done in the Western Wall Plaza area and gives us an update on the Temple Mount Sifting Project.
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).
