MACU contributes to understanding the ancient world

August 06, 2018

This summer Drs.Bob Smith and Kevin Larsen each spent time in the Middle East doing archaeological work. Dr. Bob Smith worked as the Assistant Director and Area E Supervisor in the Abila Archaeological Excavations at Quwayliba, Jordan during June and July. There, he worked with ten student volunteers from various institutions, and fifteen local workers, to uncover more of the Area E Pilgrimage Complex with a view to better understand how it functioned, and to discern the venerated person or memory of a biblical event around which the site developed. This complex provided pilgrims with a rich sensory experience as a stream of water from the city aqueduct ran through it. Dr. Smith hopes to find a mosaic inscription in the central room of the ritual structure north of the five-aisled church that will answer questions.

The team reached the floor...
