1178 – Foot-shaped stone structures and the world’s longest aqueduct
Some intriguing stories discussed on this program. The first item is a series of discoveries of early Iron Age stone structures in the shape of a foot, which may have something to do with the relationship of the foot to the ownership of land (See Ruth 4:7). At least that’s what archaeologist Adam Zertal is suggesting.
The second half of our program focuses on an example of Roman engineering at its finest, a second century aqueduct that stretched for 66 miles, across mountains and valleys, from a marsh in Syria to some of the cities of the decapolis in what is today the nation of Jordan.
