Nazareth is the Rodney Dangerfield of Biblical Archaeology, it gets virtually no attention from archaeologists and many pilgrimage tours barely visit the city. Very little is known about Nazareth archaeologically, but there is a little more known now following the work of professor Ken Dark, of the University of Reading Research Center for Late Antique and Byzantine Studies.

In this two-part interview Ken explains some of the reasons why Nazareth has been so overlooked, and what he discovered about a possible site that may have been the childhood home of Jesus.
