Shiloh, where the tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant were located for several hundred years, is once again under excavation. Last year we heard from dig director Scott Stripling, and this year he has given us an update on what is probably the largest dig in Israel, in terms of the number of volunteers.
This large number of volunteers, over 140, means that the excavation had enough people to use the wet sifting process, which was responsible for the discovery of items like a cartouche, which otherwise would have been missed. Another significant discovery: a ceramic pomegranate. And there’s a lot more to talk about regarding this important Old Testament excavation site.
