Temple Excavation at Tel Megiddo

It’s catch-up time once again on The Book & The Spade as we review items from the news digest of the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine that haven’t been discussed on the radio program yet. Professor Billington, my ARTIFAX co-editor, discusses a large Late Bronze temple excavated this past year at Tel Burna in the Shephelah region.

Then we discuss new information on animal sacrifices at the Early Bronze Age temple being excavated at Megiddo, “the most monumental single structure uncovered so far from the Early Bronze Age in the Levant.”

And finally, a few words about the most exciting excavation currently underway, the excavation of a massive tomb in northern Greece from the time of Alexander the Great.
