      SCHWEICH CENTENARY LECTURE ON BIBLICAL ARCHAEOLOGY

      Archaeology and the Bible: A Broken Link?

      Professor Graham Davies, FBA
      University of Cambridge

      Tuesday, 4 November 2008
      5.30pm - 6.30pm, followed by a drinks reception
      The British Academy, 10 Carlton House Terrace,
      London, SW1Y 5AH

      Free Admittance

      The Schweich Lectures were not originally confined to the relationship between
      archaeology and the Bible, but many of them have taken some aspect of this
      relationship as their theme, so it is an appropriate topic for a lecture which
      celebrates the centenary of the first series of lectures, which were given by
      Professor S.R. Driver. For much of the past century popular understanding of the
      subject was dominated by what came to be called 'Biblical Archaeology' in a form
      that favoured the historical accuracy of the Bible. The lecture will argue that
      this has been by no means the only or even the primary concern of study of the
      relationship between archaeology and the Bible, as several series of Schweich
      Lectures make clear. In recent years such integrative study has regrettably
      become less widespread, for reasons arising from developments in both
      archaeology and biblical studies, which the lecture will review and assess. The
      lecture will conclude with some proposals for a renewal of collaboration between
      biblical scholars and archaeologists, which will take account of a considered
      assessment of the tasks of their respective disciplines
