Recent archaeological discoveries across Israel and the Near East have resulted in a greater understanding of the Bronze and Iron Ages in the region. Archaeological remains dating to these periods provide the backdrop for the biblical histories, in some cases confirming specific events, at other times leading scholars to question received wisdom. Dr. Kaufman will review some of the major debates within the field as well as present some of his ongoing research.
