Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1528 Clyde Billington-Proverbs 31 Woman and Ancient Fabric

Seal of Elihana Bat Gael

Seal bearing the inscription “to Elihana Bat Gael”

The 2600-year old seal of a woman of Jerusalem was recently found in the Givati Car Park archaeological excavation, which prompted the first part of the discussion on this program.

We also discussed ancient fabrics and ancient seeds found in another excavation at Timna, and what they may be able to tell us about life in biblical times.

Our final item was a comparative test of survey archaeology methods: walking the field vs. satellite archaeology.
