Dr. Oded Borowski: For Everything, There is a Season (Daily Life in Biblical Times)
For decades, biblical archaeologists have excavated major sites to study important events, historical personalities, architecture and battles. But recently, they’ve begun excavating smaller sites and using new types of laboratory analysis to unlock the secrets of how ordinary people lived.
Household archaeology provides the context for the world and history that fascinate us, and using its techniques, Dr. Borowski will take us on a tour of the daily lives of our ancient forebears.
Dr. Oded Borowski is Professor Emeritus of Biblical Archaeology and Hebrew at Emory University and director of the Lahav Research Project, Phase IV, and of the excavations at Tel Halif.
The Hot Topics in Biblical Archeology Series
For centuries, archaeologists have raided ancient tombs, explored caves, unearthed watercourses, sifted through rubble, measured skulls, romanced stones and reconstructed pots from tiny shards in their quest to unlock the riddles of biblical times.
In this series, eight distinguished biblical archaeologists will discuss their detective work: the questions they ask; the finds they’ve uncovered; the technology they employ that adds science to spades and brushes; their interpretation of evidence; their struggle against fake news, both ancient and modern; and the tightrope they walk between belief in the Bible and evidence. This webinar is sponsored by Dr. Masha Mimran and the Streicker Family. We are happy to offer these webinars free of charge in these challenging times and hope you enjoy them. Any contribution to support our efforts is appreciated.
