"Armageddon's Earliest Temples: New Archaeological Discoveries at from Megiddo, Israel"
Dr. Matthew J. Adams.
April 4th, 2011: 4:00 PM
Trout Auditorium, Bucknell University
Centuries before the pyramids of Egypt rose along the Nile, the inhabitants of Megiddo organized themselves into a massive city and began construction on a monumental home for their revered god. This temple would be one of the most ambitious construction projects in the Levant, and the city responsible for it would be the earliest and largest urban formation for hundreds of miles. This 5,000-year-old "Great Temple" has now been revealed through excavations on the acropolis by Tel Aviv University's Megiddo Expedition. Dr. Adams will speak about his recent excavations with the Megiddo Expedition uncovering one of the largest and earliest temples known. Find out how students from Bucknell and around the world worked to uncover one of the most exciting discoveries in the ancient world!
We are proud to announce the addition of two new projects in Egypt to American Archaeology Abroad!
