Excavating the Biblical City of Sha'arayim; Yosef Garfinkel, PhD; November 17, 2009
After two years of fieldwork, Khirbet Qeiyafa is already becoming the center of the controversy over the existence of a complex state society in early Judah. The findings from this site have been spectacular and revealed much to archaeologists about the development of the Kingdom of Judah. In this presentation, Yosef Garfinkel presents an up-to-date description of the discoveries and possible identification of the site of Khirbet Qeiyafa.
Yosef Garfinkel (PhD 1992, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) is co-director of the Khirbet Qeiyafa Archaeological Project and the Yigael Yadin Chair in Archaeology of Eretz Israel at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel. Currently, he is co-director for The Fourth Expedition to Lachish.
