UT: Gale Family Foundation Fall 2022 Lecture

November 13 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


In 701 BCE, the Assyrian King Sennacherib led a destructive military campaign against the Kingdom of Judah. Jerusalem, its capital, was not destroyed. For this reason, the archaeology of Jerusalem and its surroundings has no “chronological anchor” that can distinguish between the days of Ahaz and Hezekiah (late 8th century BCE) and the days of King Manasseh (first half of the 7th century BCE). New excavations, new finds, and new tools recently developed in archaeological research now make it possible to illuminate the “archeology of the days of Manasseh” and learn about the history of Jerusalem during this long and important period of Judah’s subjugation to Assyrian imperial rule.
