Yossi Garfinkel at Florida College Nov. 7th

For anyone in Central Florida on Monday, November 7th, archaeologist Yossi Garfinkel will be at Florida College to present on recent discoveries from biblical Lachish. His work will focus on physical evidence regarding the early Kingdom of Judah, a subject of controversy among archaeologists.

Here is the official announcement from Dr. David McClister, chairman of the Biblical Studies Department at Florida College.

This year the Department of Biblical Studies is honored to sponsor a presentation by Dr. Yossi Garfinkel, on our campus on the evening of Monday, November 7. Dr. Garfinkel is a world-renowned Israeli archaeologist and is currently the Yigael Yadin Chair in Archaeology of Israel at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is the author of a dozen books and numerous scholarly articles; he most recently was director of the dig at Khribet Qeiyafa (2007-2013) and is currently co-director of the Fourth Archaeological Expedition at Lachish (2014 to present).

Dr. Garfinkel will share a presentation on the latest work at the Biblical site of Lachish. The presentation will be at 7pm in the Puckett Auditorium. Admission to the event is free.

Please mark this date on your calendar, and we hope to see you there.

Prof. Garfinkel spoke at Florida College two years ago on his excavations at Khirbet Qeiyafa, a site at a great location that dates to the time of David’s kingdom in the Bible.
