- A scholar’s suggestion that the first question mark in ancient writing appeared in Syriac texts
- A public radio report on the study of ancient graffiti
- And finally, an article reporting on “The New Biblical Archaeology” is discussed because of its insights, and also because of the archaeological excavations it mentions, some which we have discussed before and another that we have not.
