Inside BAR

March/April May/June 2018

Liberator of the Dead Sea Scrolls, defender of Biblical maximalism, and champion of investigating unprovenanced artifacts, Hershel Shanks—the founder and longtime Editor of Biblical Archaeology Review—has had a long, varied, successful career. To celebrate his retirement as Editor of BAR, the March/April/May/June 2018 issue highlights some of Hershel’s major campaigns in the world of Biblical archaeology and chronicles the history of the Biblical Archaeology Society. This special double issue contains reflections from some of Hershel’s friends and colleagues on the past four decades in the world of Biblical archaeology and also features a new exciting discovery from Jerusalem. Archaeologist Eilat Mazar reveals what may be a seal impression of the prophet Isaiah—unveiled here for the first time ever!
