for Students doing Online courses on
Students taking a
course on Biblical Archaeology will find this short 4 min. video
on an Introduction
to Biblical Archaeology created by Logos
Media Ed introducing their course helpful. It hosts James
Strange, Jodi Magness, and my good friend, Scott Stripling
director at Khirbet el-Maqatir.
Here are a few resources that will help you to provide quality academic research.
- Your School
"Library Subscription Databases" (i.e. JSTOR, ALTA, and
and NOT Free popular
internet sites for your research.
- My Books. especially Biblical Archaeology Vol. 1 & 2, Archaeology of the Old Testament, Archaeology of the New Testament, Digging up the Bible, and The Location of Sodom are full of side bar sections on archaeology.
- Google Books
Search for a book and use the Look
Inside feature. This can be a big help.
Use the table of contents of the book. You will need to set
up a Google account to view the pages but this is free.
Sometimes if the page is not available on
one Amazon it is in Google books so make sure to check both
sites if you don't see what you need. You do need to watch
carefully the quality of the books. (From a reputable
publisher with University in the name i.e., Oxford
University Press, Harvard, etc.). Don't use "Archaeology
for Dummies!!!" it does exist!!
- Internet Archive.
This site has the largest collection of scanned works in the
world. Almost anything that is prior to 1923 is available
because of the copyright laws. Various formats are available
including PDF, Txt, and Html.
- Wikipedia. Don't use it!!! The material is notorious for being unreliable and inaccurate. If you do look at an article go to the bottom of the article and find the footnotes and bibliography, where there will often be links to PDF files you can download or books you can look up in Google books or get at the Library. NEVER place Wikipedia in your bibliography.
