Dr. Yosef Garfinkel To Present Findings At Archaeological Lecture Series

Monday, February 4, 2013

Southern Adventist University’s Lynn H. Wood Archaeological Museum Lecture Series continues with “Sanctuaries and Cult at Khirbet Qeiyafa,” presented by Yosef Garfinkel, professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. 

The lecture will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 7:30 p.m. in Lynn Wood Hall. There will be an open house beforehand at 6:30 p.m. in the museum where visitors will be able to speak with Dr. Garfinkel and Michael Hasel, director of the Institute of Archaeology, and enjoy light refreshments. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit southern.edu/archaeology or call 423 236-2030.

Dr. Garfinkel directs the Khirbet Qeiyafa Archaeological Project where numerous groundbreaking discoveries of biblical history have been uncovered. Dr. Garfinkel will share some of the new evidence uncovered, including artifacts that provide the first physical evidence of the Israelite religion during the time of Saul and David. 

Khirbet Qeiyafa is an early Judean city, built around late 11th-early 10th centuries B.C. It is located 20 miles southwest of Jerusalem on the summit of a hill that borders the Elah Valley on the north. This is a key strategic location in the biblical Kingdom of Judah, on the main road from Philistia and the Coastal Plain to Jerusalem and Hebron in the hill country. In this area one of the world's most famous battles took place: the battle between David and Goliath. Five seasons of excavation were carried out in 2007-2011, and nearly 20 percent of the city has been uncovered.
