Dr. Bryant Wood’s Lectures on Archaeology and the Conquest

Dr. Bryant G. Wood recently presented three lectures on “Archaeology and the Conquest: New Evidence on an Old Problem” for the 2012 William R. Rice Lecture Series. The lectures, and a fourth lecture on Old Testament Archaeological Discoveries, are available in MP3 here.

The four topics available for listening are:

  • Background and Chronology of the Exodus and Conquest.
  • Digging Up the Truth at Jericho.
  • The Discovery of Joshua’s Ai.
  • Great Archaeological Discoveries Related to the old Testament.

Wood is Director of Research at the Associates for Biblical Research, editor of Bible and Spade, and director of the Excavations at Khirbet el-Maqatir (suggested as a possible site for Biblical Ai).
