1091 – Jerusalem Archaeology Update
Reviewing several recent stories on archaeology in Jerusalem, on today’s program. It’s undoubtedly one of the richest cities in the world in terms of its archaeology, and therein lies the problem. When digging anywhere is liable to open up a new archaeological excavation, archaeology becomes…inconvenient. At least archaeologists have a very pessimistic perspective on the future of archaeology in Jerusalem.
We cover several other stories on today’s program, including a report on the pools of Jerusalem. Some are still in existence, such as the Bethesda Pool. Others have been covered up and filled in. Jerusalem needed a lot of water, especially when there were daily sacrifices in the temple.
