Lecture: Excavating the Byzantine Church at Tel Kerioth

Time: 6:00 pm til 7:00 pm

Location: Selby Library, 1331 First St., Sarasota 34236

Description: Time Sifters Archaeology Society Lecture Series - Excavating the Byzantine Church at Tel Kerioth by Dr. Steven Derfler

The Arad Archaeology Center of the Israeli Antiquities Authority, Hamline University of St. Paul MN, and Educational Resources, Inc. of St. Paul MN, excavated the Byzantine Church at Tel Kerioth. It is located at the foot of Mt. Amassa, at the southern end of the Judean Hills, overlooking the Arad Basin. Over three summers, a total of 96 volunteers and students from around the world and Israel participated in this project. The site of Tel Kerioth is perhaps the hometown of one of the disciples of Jesus (Yehuda, ish Kriyot). The church was apparently built after the earthquake of 363 CE, paralleling other Christian religious structures built in Palestine after this time. The church building's final destruction came as a result of an earthquake in 747/8 CE.; one that devastated the Jordan River Valley.

An international educational consultant, public speaker, archaeologist, historian, researcher, teacher and writer, Dr. Derfler has been uncovering the histories of Ancient Civilizations for 40 years.
