Adventures in Archaeology
THE Dr. Jodi Magness participated in a Round Table Talk with Dr. Gruber titled Archaeology on Life in the First Century. Dr. Magness is the Distinguished Professor of Early Judaism at the University of North Carolina, and she is the president of the Archeological Institute of America. She has written several books and she leads the excavations at Huqoq - a site that was a Jewish village in Lower Galilee. She draws out differences between literary and archaeological disciplines and tells us how pottery is a significant element of how to date layers of time in the dig. We also hear how she happened upon some of the best, most elaborate and creative mosaics on a synagogue floor that have ever been found in Israel.
