Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1374 Bela Sandor – Pharaoh’s Chariot

Prof. Bela Sandor

Prof. Bela Sandor describes the technical marvels that made up the Tut class of ancient Egyptian chariots.

The recent PBS NOVA special on Building Pharaoh’s Chariot featured University of Wisconsin professor emeritus Bela Sandor. So we contacted prof. Sandor, invited him to the local archaeology society, and talked with him about ancient chariots.

It turns out ancient Egyptian technology in this area was hard to reproduce because it was so advanced. A new perspective on the biblical stories of the Pharaoh that chased Moses into the Red (or Reed) Sea, Solomon’s chariot cities, and the Ethiopian eunuch.

Give a listen and see what you think.

  2. The wheels on Pharaoh’s Chariot you have misinterpreted something. Viewing the wheel of 8 spokes, you will see some of the spokes are inlaid with something as to give the wheel balance and some spokes are empty.
