Thursday on Lubbock’s First News, Dr. Jesse Long, Dean of the College of Biblical Studies and Behavioral Sciences at Lubbock Christian University (LCU), gave information about the upcoming archaeology lecture to be held at the university.

On October 14th, Dr. Gabriel Barkay, a well-known Israeli archaeologist, will present “New Discoveries in Archaeology in Jerusalem” as a lecture hosted by the LCU Bible Department. Barkay is most known for his findings of amulets in the 1970s, as well as for his work on the Israel Excavation Society Sifting Project, and last year’s discovery of the Bethlehem seal from the 7th century.

Long described the way that many excavations occur in and around Jerusalem. They are often right in the middle of the city. Long said, “the old city… is covered with subsequent construction.” This is the reason much excavation is done in and around modern structures.

The event will take place at the Baker Conference Center at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free, but to reserve a seat, you can call Carmen Puente at 806-720-7651 or email at
