In these two programs we review the news digests of the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine for Biblical Archaeology items that we haven’t yet reported on the Book & The Spade. Items include an update on reconstruction plans for Herod’s Tomb, archaeological developments at Shiloh-the site of the Tabernacle, restoration of Avdat, and Negev farming.

In the second program we discussed new archaeology at Carchemish, the discovery of one of the “Gates of Hell” in Turkey (known as Plutonium), and a computer analysis that provides a solution to the question, “Who Wrote the Book of Hebrews.”
