VIRTUAL - Archaeology and Ale and Book Release with Andrew Lawler

November 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CST

This is an online event.

AIA Society: Chicago

Andrew Lawler will introduce us to his new book, UNDER JERUSALEM: The Buried History of the World’s Most Contested City. Sacred to three faiths and revered by more than half the people on the planet, Jerusalem conjures up powerful images of the celestial. Yet beneath its narrow alleys and holy places, the ancient city conceals a labyrinthine, three-dimensional time capsule recording five millennia of bustling prosperity, brutal war, and repeated religious innovation that altered the course of human history.
Since the days when Abraham Lincoln was in the White House, adventurers, archaeologists, and religious zealots have flocked here to hunt for buried treasure, unearth sacred artifacts like the Ark of the Covenant, and find proof of the Bible’s veracity. That digging to reveal the past continues today—and, in so doing, continues to alter the city’s future.
In this book he takes us into the tombs, tunnels, and trenches of the Holy City and brings to life the indelible characters who have investigated this subterranean landscape.
You can pre-order the book at the Seminary Coop Bookstore
