Lachish 2014: Excavating War and Destruction in Ancient Judah; Martin G. Klingbeil, DLitt; October 6, 2014
After Jerusalem, Lachish was the most important city in Judah during the Divided Monarchy period in ancient Israel. Mentioned two dozen times in the Old Testament, Lachish was destroyed during the Divided Monarchy period by Sennacherib, king of Assyria in 701 B.C., and again by Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon in 586 B.C. In his lecture, Martin Klingbeil presents the rich excavation data from the 2014 season at Tel Lachish.
Martin Klingbeil (DLitt. 1995, Stellenbosch University) is a professor of Biblical Studies and Archaeology at Southern, as well as the associate director of its Institute of Archaeology. He is currently co-director for The Fourth Expedition to Lachish.
