Just read this short article on Sodom and Gomorrah
A team of archaeologists led by Prof. Steve Collins has reportedly unearthed the ruins of the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, which according to the Bible suffered a catastrophic destruction caused by God.
Collins and his team from the Trinity Southwest University in New Mexico announced that after 10 years of excavation and study as part of the Tall el-Hammam excavation project, they have discovered what seems to be the site of the biblical city of Sodom, according to the digital magazine Popular Archeology.
“The archaeological team unearthed a goldmine of ancient monumental structures and artifacts that are revealing a massive Bronze Age city-state that dominated the region of Jordan’s southern Jordan Valley, even during a time when many other great cities of the ‘Holy Land’ region were either abandoned or in serious decline,” Collins said.
“Very, very little was known about the Bronze Age in the Middle Ghor (southern Jordan Valley) before we began our excavations in 2005,” he said. “Even most of the archaeological maps of the area were blank, or mostly so. What we’ve got on our hands is a major city-state that was, for all practical purposes, unknown to scholars before we started our project.”
Having known Steven Collins in the past I am not surprised that he would support his own error filled and misguided theory that he is digging on the site of Sodom and Gomorrah.
i won’t say too much more as I try to keep personal feelings out of this work but we will be writing about his work in an upcoming issue of feeding the flock magazine due out early next year. we will be fair, honest and explore the problems that arise with Dr. Collins’ work and declarations.
