Michael G. Hasel, Ph.D. - Excavating in the Shadow of Alxander the Great

In this lecture, Hasel shares the latest archaeological discoveries found at Khirbet Qeiyafa. In the 2010 season, the Southern Adventist University excavation team uncovered a large building dating to the time of Alexander the Great, the late fourth century BC. This discovery, along with Hellenistic period pottery and coins, provides strong evidence for a second period of occupation at this important biblical site. Khirbet Qeiyafa made headlines in 2008 when the oldest Hebrew writing was found there. A massive city wall and two, four-chamber gates dating to the time of King David (tenth century BC) were also uncovered. Lecture Date: October 7, 2010
