Khirbet Summeily: Excavations on the Philistine Border; James W. Hardin, PhD; March 28, 2016
Is the historical information of the Bible accurate? Recently, the accounts of the United Monarchy with its greatest king, David and Solomon, has come under strong criticism. In this presentation, James Hardin brings recent information from surveys and excavations on the border between Judah and Philistia that shed light on this important question.
James W. Hardin (PhD 2001, Cobb Institute of Archaeology) has participated widely in archaeological fieldwork, both in the southeastern and southwestern United States and at numerous sites in Cyprus, Israel, and Jordan. Hardin specializes in the Bronze and Iron Age cultures of ancient Syria-Palestine. He is an expert in ceramic analysis with wider interests including early and secondary state formation, household archaeology, multi-disciplinary approaches to understanding the archaeological record, and the use of archaeology, anthropology, biblical texts and other historical documents for understanding Old Testament history and the broader cultures of the ancient Near East.
