The Historical Roots of Biblical Archaeology: What’s Up Down Under
Long before Indiana Jones, a cadre of intrepid archaeologists with little more than a spade and shovel began digging in the dirt of Ottoman (and British) Palestine. Let’s get acquainted with who they were, where they came from, and the incredible finds they brought to the light of day for the first time in thousands of years. The controversies surrounding them are just as relevant today, as the Middle East is rife with contention over whom this holy land belongs to. Grab your fedora because it’s time for adventure! Our presenter, Dr. Ken Hanson, is Coordinator of Interdisciplinary Program in Judaic Studies at the University of Central Florida. His multiple books, appearances on syndicated radio and national television have brought his unique insights into everyone’s world. Dr. Hanson’s exceptional theatrical style of presentation never fails to captivate and engage his audience.
