Re: SV: [ANE-2] Re: University of Haifa: Most ancient Hebrew biblical inscription deciphered
- Dear Niels Peter,
Many thanks for that. I was unaware of this article. Thanks for sending this link. It will be worthwhile studying these photos but in general it is necessary to have very high resolution images in order to check the details. And as a matter fact even then it cannot be done without finally checking the original inscriptions under special lighting and magnification. At least this is what I do when studying seals and bullae.

The first thing that occurred to me was how ahead of his time he was to realize the power of the moving image to enthrall the public back home! And secondly, it may be the first multimedia excavation ever (in their case, printed report and film).

at the famous site Jebel Moya, south-central Sudan, which I am
re-examining. The clips are available on the Wellcome Trust's website.
