1542 Clyde Billington – Jerusalem’s Trash & Ancient Writing
More news digest items from the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine covered in this week’s program with ARTIFAX co-editor Clyde Billington, including:
- The discovery of the garbage dump from first century Jerusalem including the remains of the Last Supper (not identified yet, but it’s got to be in there somewhere)
- A cache of first century writing tablets from London, at the other end of the Roman Empire
- An abecedary (alphabet listing) from 15th century BC Egypt, the time of Moses
- And conclusive evidence that the ancient Coptic papyrus fragment that mentions the wife of Jesus is actually a forgery
