    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.

  • Crash Course ~ Life In Germany
  • Fee: $21.00
    Dates: 6/9/2021 - 6/30/2021
    Times: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
    Days: W
    Sessions: 4
    Building: Central Methodist Church
    Room: Upper Room
    Instructor: Carol Nescio

    This course will focus on the cultural curiosities of life in Germany. There's more to the country than beer and Bratwurst, more than castles and cuckoo clocks.  We'll skim over some history, then take a look at things Germans do that might seem odd - or charmingly unique - to Americans. As James Michener said:  "If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion, and avoid the people, you might better stay home." If you want to travel but not quite ready to get on a plane, then come learn about Life in Germany.
