Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1501 Clyde Billington – Tut’s Tomb and the Acra Fortress

Tut'sTomb

King Tut’s Tomb

The two hottest stories in archaeology right now are: the search for additional rooms in the tomb of King Tutankhamun (possibly the tomb of Nefertiti or some other pharaoh), and the discovery of the Hellenistic fortress known as the Acra, right outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.

On this program, professor Clyde Billington (my co-editor on ARTIFAX magazine) brings our listeners up-to-date on what’s happening with these two stories and supplies some background information to help explain their significance and their connection to biblical archaeology.
