Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1192 – Tel Tayinat Update


Earlier this year we talked with Timothy Harrison about the Tel Tayinat excavations, in the same general area as Antioch. But Timothy Harrison is excavating in an earlier period, an Iron Age temple in fact, where he’s found some cuneiform tablets, according to the latest reports.

We also mention excavations at another Turkish site, Laodicea (one of the seven cities of Revelation), as well as Sidon, a Lebanese city just north of Israel.
