#1507-1508 Todd Bolen – 2016 Excavation Plans
It’s a long standing tradition throughout the 33 years of The Book & The Spade that we start the year by looking ahead to the planned institutional excavations. It gives us a guideline for discussing what’s happening in biblical archaeology, and what has been happening in the past couple years. In 2016 one long running excavation, at Ashkelon, is coming to a close.
But a number of excavations have started just in the last few years so there will continue to be a lot of work to do. And you never know what’s going to turn up.
I’m joined again for this assessment by Todd Bolen, the editor of bibleplaces.com. Todd has lived and taught in Israel for a number of years and helps us evaluate each site.
