Khirbet El-Maqatir, a small site about nine miles NNE of Jerusalem, has what the nearby site of et-Tell lacks, Bronze Age remains from the time of Joshua. Bryant Wood of Associates for Biblical Research believes Khirbet El-Maqatir is the city of Ai, conquered by Joshua shortly after the conquest of Jericho.
After four more weeks of 2013 excavations, the most productive season since the first season, he is even more convinced. He explains why in this 2-part interview.
