Synopsis

The Bible is both a religious and historical work, but how much is myth and how much is history? This masterful investigation into the origins of the Bible visits archaeological digs in Egypt, Jordan and Israel including Megiddo, the cradle of biblical archaeology. Rare archival footage, ancient maps, biblical illustrations and computer simulations are put into context by world-famous archaeologists and biblical scholars, including experts from the Louvre, the museums of Cairo and Jerusalem, and the British Museum.

The Bible Unearthed does something which has never been done before: it reveals a still-unraveling revolution of what we know of the society, the history, and the men who wrote the Bible.

Based on the best-selling book by Israel Finkelstein and Neil Silberman.
