This program includes the third and final segment of a series of conversations with Todd Bolen of Bibleplaces.com on the most exciting discoveries of this summer’s archaeological excavations in Israel. We cover the discovery of another synagogue floor mosaic depicting Samson at Huqoq, near the Sea of Galilee. We also discuss the discovery of a fragment of a 4500-year old Sphinx at Hazor, the first sphinx ever found outside of Egypt.
