Digging Up Armageddon: The Search for the Lost City of Solomon

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

The University of Chicago excavations at the ancient mound at Megiddo—biblical Armageddon—yielded stunning discoveries in the 1920s and 1930s that transformed our understanding of the ancient world. Their expedition made headlines around the world, unearthing biblical-era monuments including gates, palaces, stables, and temples, along with gold and ivory treasures.

In this illustrated lecture, which is based on his new book published by Princeton University Press, Eric H. Cline, a professor of classics and anthropology and director of George Washington University’s Capitol Archaeological Institute—who himself excavated at Megiddo for twenty years—draws on archival records left by the participants to present a portrait of a bygone age of archaeology. He sets the expedition against the backdrop of the Great Depression and growing troubles and tensions in British Mandate Palestine, discussing the infighting that roiled the expedition as well as its significance in expanding the scope of knowledge in biblical archaeology.
