(p.36) Chapter 3 Archaeology and the Bible: A Broken Link?
The Schweich Lectures and Biblical Archaeology

Graham Davies

British Academy

This chapter, while not losing sight of the Schweich Lectures and their influence, explores some more general issues that are raised particularly by the study of archaeology in connection with the Bible. Rather than examining the full extent of such issues, it examines the changing perceptions over the past century of what (if anything) archaeology can contribute to biblical study. Then it will be possible to ask whether this part of ‘the Schweich project’ still has any value, and if so how it may most fruitfully be taken forward.

Keywords:   Schweich Lectures, archaeology, biblical study
