Israel Antiquities Authority vs. Conspiracy of (Alleged) Forgers
I am an American author and journalist writing a book about the forgery and fraud trial, to be published by Smithsonian Press as soon as the trial ends. Thank you Hershel Shanks, for keeping us up to date on the fascinating developments in this long running case. I am curious, though, why there’s no mention in this update of the Joash tablet and the eight other item, or groups of items, including bullae, seals, ostraca, which the government alleges Golan forged, and sold, or attempted to sell. Is it possible that Mr. Shanks believes the other items are also as authentic as some believe the ossuary is? Or do we think the government has not made its case? I would love to read more about this. I’d be interested to hear thoughts on this.
