On Monday, March 14, at 7 pm, Peter Machinist will present the second lecture of the new Trinity Biblical and Ancient Near Eastern Archaeology Lecture series at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL. He will speak on “Achaemenid Persia as Spectacle.” This lecture is free and open to the public. See the announcement for details.
The website for the Lynn H. Wood Archaeological Museum Lecture Series at the Institute of Archaeology, Southern Adventist University (Collegedale, TN) reports that John Monson will speak on the topic of “Solomon’s Temple: The Center of the Universe Then and Now,” on Wednesday, March 16, at 7 pm. This appears to be a change from our earlier report which had Bryant Wood speaking at this same date and time. The Lynn H. Wood Lectures are free and open to the public. See the website for more information.
