Excavating the Borderlands (Tel Burna) – Chris McKinny


Episode: Chris McKinny sits down with Kyle Keimer to discuss the Tel Burna Archaeological Project, where he’s been digging for over a decade. This important borderland site of biblical Libnah offers some important insights into historical Judah.

They discuss the following topics:
– The identification of Tel Burna with biblical Libnah
– The Canaanite cultic remains found at Tel Burna
– The Judahite fortress and gate with destructions from the 10th (Shishak?), 8th (Sennacherib), and early 6th centuries (Nebuchadnezzar) BC

    Chris, your comments in relation to surveys reminded me of the saying of an old friend who was WWII Lt Col – Time spent in reconnaissance is seldom, if ever, wasted!!
