1088-1089 Herod’s Tomb Discovery
A major discovery reported in Biblical Archaeology just a few weeks ago, the discovery of Herod’s Tomb. In case you missed the stories, Haaretz newspaper and Hebrew University had some of the best details. We talked with Ehud Netzer, the archaeologist in charge, and historian Paul Maier of Western Michigan University. We will discuss this discovery further in the weeks and months ahead. And we hope to visit the scene of the discovery in our 25th anniversary BOOK & THE SPADE tour in 2008. Details on the tour will be announced shortly.
