Yigal Yadin (Sukenik) is certainly a colorful individual and you will find him interesting. For Yadin you will have a lot of material to sort through. In this archaeology course we are not interested in his political or military career, so don’t spend a lot of time on these. For more information on Yadin look in a good Bible Dictionary or Encyclopedia LINK under the sites that he excavated. Questions that you should answer in your paper include:

  1. Where did he take his training?
  2. What was his specialty?
  3. Where did he excavate?
  4. Who did he excavate with?
  5. What discoveries did he make or was involved in?
  6. What role did he play in the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls?
  7. What was the Biblical impact of his research?
