The 2016 Season at Lachish: Excavating a Border City on the Road to Jerusalem, 2016; Michael G. Hasel, PhD; October 10, 2016
The Biblical city of Lachish was the second most important city in Judah. The Bible records various instances where Lachish were conquered, such as the Israelite conquest, the Assyrian siege and its destruction by the Babylonians. Lachish has played an important role very early in the period of the patriarchs from Joseph to the Iron Age period. In this presentation, Hasel discusses the 2016 season at Tel Lachish.
Michael Hasel (PhD 1996, University of Arizona) is director of the Institute of Archaeology and curator of the Lynn H. Wood Archaeological Museum at Southern Adventist University. At present, he is co-director for The Fourth Expedition to Lachish.
