Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1409-1410 Clyde Billington – Top Ten Biblical Archaeology Discoveries of 2013

CTweb2013

Discovery #1 – the Egyptian scarab found at Khirbet el-Maqatir.

What’s the best way to convey the dynamic field of Biblical Archaeology, the only source of new facts about the Bible and the Biblical world? Perhaps one of the best ways is to put together a list of the top discoveries at the end of each year. That’s what I’ve done for the last few years and this year’s list has just been posted by Christianity Today.

The list is taken from the discoveries we’ve discussed on The Book & The Spade radio program and reported in the pages of ARTIFAX magazine over the past year. I invited Professor Clyde Billington, one of my ARTIFAX co-editors on to the program to discuss these discoveries, and to add extra perspective.

Exciting discoveries happen regularly in the field of Biblical Archaeology, these are some of them.
