1331 Clyde Billington – Sodom or Heshbon?
An alternative view of Prof. Steven Collins excavation of Tall el-Hammam. Collins believes he is excavating biblical Sodom. Prof. Clyde Billington thinks that Sodom is probably located south of the Dead Sea, not north.
Instead, he proposes that Tall el-Hammam could be Bronze Age Heshbon, a site that has been sought by archaeologists since it was discovered that Iron Age Heshbon has no Bronze Age remains (from the time of the Exodus). This discussion is based on an article by prof. Billington in the current issue of ARTIFAX magazine.
