    Byron McCane will offer a four-week look at what archeology is and how it uncovers so much more than centuries of sand. Dr. McCane will focus primarily on archeology in the Middle East, with a spotlight on Israel. After introducing the discipline and an overview of studies in Israel, Byron will look at archeology related to Herod the Great, Caesarea Maritima, The Temple in Jerusalem and Herod's Fortress on Masada. He will explain how archeology complements ancient texts and how, when coupled with other disciplines, it sheds a brighter light on historical events.
