• A Proposal for Additional Archaeological Excavation in Jerusalem

    Pages: 5

    A 5 page contention that the modern era of the nineteenth and twentieth century have by many accounts waged more damage on Jerusalem than the city has incurred at any point in her pre-modern history. Much of this damage relates to the perception of the religious importance of the city. It is an insult which is deserved of a deliberate archaeological effort to clarify that indeed Jerusalem was, and is, one of the most important religious shrines on earth. This paper proposes additional excavation in Jerusalem which is designed to demonstrate that the Bible, despite growing perceptions to the contrary, is an accurate historical record and not just the myth of which some would prefer it be comprised. A brief budget is proposed based on a fictional $1,000,000 grant. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
