National Geographics Ancient X Files Full Documentary

The full version of the National Geographics documentary has been posted on YouTube. I think they did a reasonable job to provide a non-technical look at our research. There is so much more archaeology that has happened in the last 8 years that they did not mention and just highlighted the spooky stuff but it is the Ancient X files after all. Still what they do mention is true and accurate about the destruction layer and the glazed pottery klinker. It was staged to tell the story as if it was taking place in a few days but it has taken 10 years to do the research. Dr. David Maltsberger is great as the Hebrew scholar but Steve is an excellent Hebrew scholar in his own right and didn't need anyone to tell him the meaning of the Kikkar. But great story telling my National Geographics. I think it is a great way to get the word out to the public. Love the part where Dr. Collins says from Mt. Nebo "and Egeria saw Livias and there it is." Even Livias got an honorable mention.
