Dr. Larsen returns from archaeological expedition to Shiloh

June 23, 2017

Dr. Kevin Larsen, vice president for academic affairs, has recently returned from a three week trip to Israel (May 26 - June 17, 2017). The purpose of the trip was to join the organization "The Associates for Biblical Research" in their first season of doing archaeological work at ancient Shiloh in Israel. This trip marks Dr. Larsen's third trip to Israel to engage in archaeological research. Prior dig experiences include working at Khirbet el-Maqatir and Ashkelon.   Work that Dr. Larsen participated in during the dig season focused on excavating the Middle Bronze Age (c. 1700 BC) wall on the northwest side of the site.

The Bible indicates Israelite occupation. Modern scholars deny the accuracy of the biblical account.  Pictured left with Dr....
