Kingdom Of David & Solomon, The Bible’s Secrets Explained

Prelude

I have said often that I like Youtube.  And, that asymmetric gratefulness was further extended yesterday.

Watching a couple of videos, I learnt a lot more about Archaeology.

Words stay with me, such as “Archaeology is a destructive science“.

Archaeology is a destructive science

Methods of Gathering Data

“Believe it or not archaeologists do not often excavate (dig) entire sites! Archaeology is a destructive science—meaning that once a site is excavated it is gone forever. The artifacts and information gathered remain, but the site itself can never be recreated. Excavating sites is also costly and time consuming. Once the dig is done, archaeologists have a professional responsibility to analyze all of the artifacts and information obtained, to report on their research in scholarly journals and to the public, and to curate the collections. For all of these reasons, archaeologists generally excavate sites only when they are threatened by destruction from construction or development or when they may reveal important information about past cultures. And they usually excavate only a small portion of any site” – Archaeology for the Public

Videos –  Youtube

Here are the two videos that I watched:

Summary

I am out of words as I will have to hurdle through too many decision markers .  And, so I will have you view on your own and track your “local peaks” (better explained by kevin Kiley in his book “New Rules” – Section “Let Go at the Top”).
