The cities of Jerusalem, Babylon and Bethlehem are more than just settings for epic stories from the Bible: they were instrumental to its creation. This presentation blends archaeology with biblical history to explore these cities and their roles in the building of the Hebrew and Christian Bibles. Professor Cargill will share surprising historical facts along with illustrations of artifacts, dig sites, and ruins. These sources spotlight a far-reaching journey from the battlegrounds of Megiddo to the Grotto of the Nativity and from the towering Acropolis of Athens to the caves of Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered.
