If you’ve wanted to attend an overseas biblical archaeology conference but never have the time and/or money, Hebrew University and the Moriah Center are bringing this year’s International Conference on Biblical Archaeology online to you. For a reasonable registration fee you can watch from home, and at times convenient for you. (If you subscribe to BAR, look for a discount code in the current Nov/Dec issue.)
The program includes presentations on a number of prominent biblical sites and figures including the 1st century Jerusalem Pilgrim Road, kings David and Hezekiah, the Temple of Solomon, the Temple Mount Sifting Project, some of the recent work at Magdala, and more. The multinational lineup of scholars includes Yosef Garfinkel, Gabriel Barkay, Eli Shukron, Marcela Zapata-Meza, Igor Kreimerman, Adolfo Roitman, Rodrigo Silva, and David Sedaca.
The conference runs in Jerusalem from October 24 – 27. Those who register may view the videos freely during a 60-day access period that begins October 24. Participants also receive a certificate from Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
You can read all of the details at the Conference’s website.
The videos have optional subtitles in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Register now, then sit back and enjoy the lectures as you have the time over the next two months.
