The Mediterranean World of Bible Archaeology

A Vast Historical Panorama

All around the Mediterranean Sea - I exaggerate slightly - the eastern side of it anyway, archaeologists have been busy working to uncover the fascinating stories of some of the earliest civilisations known to man.

The story if this work to date is engrossing, and not only that - it's a work in progress. New discoveries are happening all the time.

Teams of archaeologists toil in the summer sun, often helped by volunteers from abroad eager for the chance to take part in the latest finds and discoveries, and in many cases to gain credits towards degree qualifications as well.

Across the world, 'back room boffins' turn their expertise on the finds, to extract from these fragments of civilisation more clues as to how people lived, and the course of ancient world history.

For many people, taken up with daily living, this may seem to be a world away. But everyone gets plagued from time to time with questions like "Where DID we come from?" "What DID go on there?" Everyone loves a bit of history, a bit of mystery, and the thought that these "explorers" are bringing us closer to our roots.

Come with me and we'll have a look at what they're doing...
