Cult and Politics in Israel at the Time of King David
Internationally renowned archaeologist Yosef Garfinkel will present on his recent excavations of a 1,000 year-old site in Israel on the border between ancient Philistia and the Kingdom of Judea. Garfinkel found three unique rooms that he has compared with biblical descriptions of the temple of King Solomon.
As new discoveries are made by archaeologists worldwide, questions surface about coordination of biblical texts and the evidence revealed in excavations. The site of Garfinkel’s excavations is in the area described in the Hebrew Bible where David slew Goliath, and where the earliest known Hebrew text was found.
Garfinkel is the Yigal Yadin Professor in the Institute of Archaeology at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University.
