WASHINGTON, DC: April 8, 2020—The Biblical Archaeology Society, publisher of Biblical Archaeology Review (BAR), has opened its Spring 2020 issue free to online readers worldwide. While people are staying home, the publication is providing an entertaining and enriching digital resource for anyone interested in archaeology and biblical research in the Near East.
“We are inviting people to explore the world of biblical archaeology,” said Robert C. Cargill, the magazine’s editor. Readers at our website will enjoy discovering ancient sites and current excavations. People in the times of the Bible come alive through the works of scholarly and entertaining writers.
Biblical Archaeology Review, a quarterly magazine, is brimming with stunning photos as well
as news, commentary, trivia, and much more.
The current issue highlights archaeological mysteries:
• Which is the true location of biblical Bethsaida? Read two articles, with each making the case for a different site on the Sea of Galilee.
• Was Qumran home only to the supposedly celibate Essenes who authored the Dead Sea Scrolls? Female skeletons discovered there question that notion.
• When did literacy emerge in Judah? New evidence sheds light on this question.
This is just a sample of the lively and readable articles packed into this and every issue of Biblical Archaeology Review. There is so much more available to readers.
The Biblical Archaeology Society’s website is rich with resources for the armchair archaeological explorer. With an online library of more than 9,000 articles from three publications, we have started a new feature called “Library Explorer,” featuring special topics of interest. Other publications available via the website are a series of free e-Books, videos, and articles, as well as a free issue of Bible Review.
This is the perfect time to delve into the treasures that archaeologists have discovered and presented in readable, informative articles in the pages of Biblical Archaeology Review.
