Should Archaeology Odyssey expand its reach?

By Hershel Shanks

Archaeology Odyssey

We started Archaeology Odyssey six years ago as an offshoot of Biblical Archaeology Review (BAR). Many BAR readers were interested in archaeology beyond the world of the Bible. They wanted to explore what happened before the biblical period as well as what happened after the biblical texts were written. They wanted to look at lands beyond the immediate lands of the Bible. And they wanted to contemplate aspects of life that were unrelated or only distantly related to the Bible.
