"Segment with the Eric Klein George nori with you is because gold digging up Armageddon the search for the lost city of Solomon I bet on those excavations that's got to be exciting you must have what butterflies in your stomach when you're on your way there Eric every time every time I'm on my way there yes it's a very exciting to go you know for many people it's a once in a lifetime experience and even though I get to go digging every summer it never gets old if you'll pardon the pun it's it's so it's it's fun it's exciting and you'll never know what you're gonna find the that's the beauty of it what do you use today do just bring little shovels or do you bring back close with you what do you have we almost never use backhoes what we more usually use in the surprises people at least in the in the region the Middle East we frequently do it with large pixels if you're digging in your backyard large picture goals wheelbarrows because you've got to move the dirt and there is an awful lot of dirt we do switch them into small hand picks which we call petition but it's like a little rock hammer and travels when we get into the areas where we're digging and coming down on a living surface or for things like that so we always have these little little hammers little little bitty Sheamus we call them and travels hanging from their belts usually but those are more for the delicate operations so the big picture very frequently the order of the day when you're trying to move dental tools we only use dental tools when we're excavating usually a skeleton of course very delicate indeed what is the strangest thing Eric on an excavation you've ever discovered well it was something I thought it was strange I thought I had found the petrified monkey's paw really that that's what I thought I was actually on my first day I was a sophomore in college and it was in the north of Israel Greco Roman say the recreation room of their place hold on a file I was digging it was about nine in the morning no this is this was you know thirty forty years ago those were the days when I dug in a bathing suit and nothing else which of course we wouldn't do today but it was about nine AM when I was getting kind of sunstroke and my my my petition hit a metal object and it flew up in the air and as it went everything went into slow motion and I thought oh look it's green it's a petrified monkey's paw and this by the time it it landed I thought that silly if there weren't any monkeys in northern Israel back in antiquity and indeed when I picked it up it was not a countrified monkey's paw but it was part of a bronze furniture inlaid basically you know when you sit on a chair that has arms if you lay your arm along the chairs are what they had here was a bronze implement that you could grab on to and it was actually in the shape of the Greek god pan the place with double flute from the Longhorns and the worst of the worst of the cherished completely gone it was tional disintegrated right but the bronze was still there and of course bronze turns green over time so it wasn't a petrified monkey's paw but it was about a two inch high basically a little figurine of pan and the neat thing was that they took it down to Jerusalem immediately in the central part of the museum and I never saw it again until about four years ago I was in Haifa looking in their museum and there I thought well that looks a lot like the one I dance use the one I found and sure enough it was on loan from the from the museum in Jerusalem to the museum in Haifa I quickly took a selfie of myself with that which is a good thing because when I went back three weeks later it wasn't there anymore I was gonna say you can't keep those things that you find though no we can't belongs to the country in which we find you have any are they they're watching you no not per se it's kind of like the honor system right will they there are inspectors to come around to make sure you're doing the you know what if they caught you with that in your suitcase going through the airport well they wouldn't touch is I wouldn't do that I know you went by did say let's see if somebody did it be looking in the rest of find time in jail really and your your academic reputation besmirched for all time it's just it ain't worth up well I better get back to the ark of the covenant that I have been wondering where that was okay let's go back to John in Alaska welcome to the program high Joni thank you very much and thank you Eric hi this is an excellent program couple quick comments and then a question all right you mentioned the C. peoples of the mystery of history Steve Collins did a series of books on Israel's interaction over the centuries with different empires and countries you mentioned to see people in the volume on Israel's lost empires you can get it from my Bible blessings dot net or something like that and then you mentioned also that the mosaic that was found what from the third century thirty fifth century was the first reference to Jesus Christ I'm Jewish and historic and Roman historian in the first century documented historical existence of Jesus as a person and also his resurrection and the numerous witnesses to his resurrection and that was the first country my question for you well if I'm in route for the mosaic is the first time we find it written and in any archaeological context so yes you're quite right about Joseph is being much earlier but this mosaic is the first time that's ever actually found an archaeological context John what's your question okay that question is you know been known by other names in different times it seems to have always been known at least by some variance there are some occasions I think it might be in Zechariah where it may be referred to as Maggie don in the Bible but basically it's always been some version today though the in the mount itself in Arabic is known as Tel L. moved to Saint Louis and select the mound of the governor there must've been a governor that live there in autumn in times or something but in antiquity it would it always has the name of Megiddo as far as we can tell can you imagine the amazing things Eric that happened during those past years ancient years in those regions just truly remarkable it must've been amazing I mean this is why I do what I do I'm I've always been fascinated since about the age of seven with antiquities and archaeology I mean was knew this was what I was gonna do but yeah it's absolutely fascinating I think the study the people that came before us and and the sea and in some ways so very similar they are and yet the same time hello quite different they are do you think Moses really parted the Red Sea well I got a little problem with that because there were so many people that would have left it would have had to hold his arms up for like eight days which is a long time to do that so the that's a whole nother kettle of fish right in there we did find a cherry on the bottom of the Red Sea did you remember that story there is that story I doubt it's that was run why it's in the news as far as I can tell no truth to it would that there weren't but there isn't so we're still looking for actually the X. so this is one of the absolutely hardest things to try and document you'd think there'd be a lot more evidence for it but there is not infected one of my older books culled from Eden the exile I've got an entire chapter on the excellence and I go through some of the problems we've got in room and why we haven't been able to find it as easily as we might think we could all right let's go next to Carl in the Bronx say Carl thanks for calling go ahead hi George thank you for taking my call you know I just have a few bullets that I wanna you know mentioned that there was a famous Roman battle for at the mounds of make a you know the city of Mickey though and that's the Romans were very clever in defeating the resistance will also there's groups now in in Palestine that are planning that the third temple of David's and also as George mentioned the locks of the company in the have they come closer to finding it is if you need your your visit knights Templar ticket back to France back centuries ago when they were there and then also I want to mention that there was a major discovery of the tool of mark Anthony and Cleopatra in Jordan and whether you will or will get involved in that you know all you know was speaking to I know that it's a secret location and are you want you'll be going over to Jordan to get involved with that so there's quite a lot of history of that area and I think before the battle of Armageddon actually occurs if he is the third temple of David has to be built on the offer the problem has to be found and the all this is all in prophecy okay so I I want to know what we should take on some of these areas that I've touched on will you you certainly touched on quite a bit there first I think maybe you were thinking of the battle of Masada that the Romans that's it yes exactly so that would be in about seventy three AD this tomb of you said Anthony and Cleopatra in Jordan that news to me I haven't heard of that nor do I know anybody working on that I'll look into that the ark of the covenant there's all kinds of possibilities as to where it could be I've been in since some billionaires house one thing more than likely I actually think there's a very good chance that was accidentally destroyed when Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem in five eighty six BC because he lists all the stuff that he took back to Babylon and he does not list the ark of the covenant it's possible that it was spirited out of the city before them but really it hadn't been seen almost since the day is almost since the days of Solomon so I don't think it's under the Temple Mount I don't think it's in the C. O. P. a I don't think it's over in Jordan the question is then where is it or does it still exist as I say I tend towards the theory that if it's not hidden away somewhere that it may well have been accidentally destroyed but nobody can answer and this man did exist welcome charcoal question I think it did yes well there are people that live in an old news that don't so it's a matter of personal faith it does look an awful lot like the type of chests and boxes that are carrying around at the end of the late Bronze Age and until the Iranians was one that works similar to it for example in king tut's tomb so and the description that we've got in the Bible certainly is logical but as to where it went the anyone's question the one thing I would say if you do find it of course don't touch it that's right people died from just that apparently do you think the ten commandments are in the ark I have absolutely no idea if they are they're going to be shattered into pieces of course because that's the tradition they're supposed to be also a couple of other things that are in the arc as well but you know we know that when the Indiana Jones opened it up well that was a bad move for everybody it's gonna Linda Juneau Alaska west of the Rockies Highlander I I appreciate you taking my call my question or concern and curiosity of course is what were the names of the ten historic cities.

the mosaic that was found it works from the third century thirty fifth century was the first reference to Jesus Christ difficult situation historic and Roman historian in the first century documented historical existence of Jesus as a person and also his resurrection and the numerous witnesses to his resurrection and that was the first country my question for you well if I don't interrupt for the mosaic is the first time we find it written and in any archaeological context so yes you're quite right about Joseph is being much earlier but this mosaic is the first time this has ever actually found an archaeological context John what's your question okay that question is yes ma'am you know been known by other names in different times Lolo it seems to have always been known at least by some variance there are some occasions I think it might be in the sector where it may be referred to as Maggie don in the Bible but basically it's always been some version today though the in the mount itself in Arabic is known as Tel L. moved to Salem click the mound of the governor there must have been a governor that live there and often times or something but in antiquity it would it always has the name of Megiddo as far as we can tell can you imagine the amazing things Eric that happened during those past years ancient years in those regions just truly remarkable it must have been amazing I mean this is why I do what I do I'm I've always been fascinated since about the age of seven with antiquities and archaeology I mean was knew this was what I was gonna do but yes absolutely fascinating I think to study the people that came before us and and the sea and in some ways numbers some of who they are and yet at the same time held quite different they are using miles is really part of the Red Sea well I got a little problem with that because there were so many people that would've left he would have had to hold his arms up for like eight days which is a long time to do that so the that's a whole nother kettle was in there trying to cheer him on the bottom of the Red Sea did you remember that story there is that story I doubt it so that was run why it's in the news as far

why we haven't been able to find it as easily as we might think we could all right let's go next to Carl in the Bronx say Carl thanks for calling go ahead short thank you for taking my call you know I just have a few bullets that I wanna you know mentioned that there was a famous Roman battle for half the amount of make a you know the city of Mickey though and that's the Romans were very clever in defeating the resistance will follow also there's groups now in in Palestine that are planning that the third temple of David's and also has large mentions the octave with confidence the topic come closer to finding it is if you need to you all for your visit knights Templars ticket back to France back centuries ago when they were there and then also I want to mention that there was a major discovery of the tomb of Marc Anthony and Cleopatra Dustin Jordan and whether you own the fall will get involved in that you know all you know was speaking to I know that it's a secret location and are you would you be going over to Jordan to get involved with that so there's quite a lot of history of that area and I think before the battle of Armageddon actually occurs he is the third temple of

first I think maybe you weren't thinking of the battle it must follow that the Romans that's it yes exactly so that would be in about seventy three AD this tomb of you said Anthony and Cleopatra in Jordan that's news to me I haven't heard of that nor do I know anybody working on that I'll look into that the ark of the covenant there's all kinds of possibilities as to where it could be five minutes and some billionaires house one thing more than likely I actually think there's a very good chance that was accidentally destroyed when Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem in five eighty six BC because he lists all the stuff that you took back to Babylon and he does not list the ark of the covenant it's possible that it was spirited out of the city before them but really it hadn't been seen almost since the day is almost since the days of Solomon so I don't think it's under the Temple Mount I don't think it's in the C. O. P. S. I don't think it's over in Jordan the question is then where is that or does it still exist as I say I tend towards the theory that if it's not hidden away somewhere that it may well have been accidentally destroyed but nobody can answer and this man didn't exist welcome charcoal question I think it did yeah well there are people that live in and who's that don't so it's a matter of personal faith it does look an awful lot like the type of chests and boxes that are carrying around at the end of the late Bronze Age and until the Iranians was one that works similar to it for example in king tut's tomb so and the description that we've got in the Bible certainly is logical but as to where it went the anyone's question the one thing I would say if you do find it of course don't touch it that's right people died from just that apparently do you think the ten commandments are in the ark I'll absolutely no idea if they are they're going to be shattered into pieces of course because that's the tradition they're supposed to be also a couple of other things that are in the art as well but you know we know that when the Indiana Jones opened up well that was a bad move for everybody to go to Linda in Juneau Alaska west of the Rockies highland I I appreciate you taking my call my question or concern and curiosity of course is what were the names.

"Segment with the Eric Klein George nori with you is because gold digging up Armageddon the search for the lost city of Solomon I bet on those excavations that's got to be exciting you must have what butterflies in your stomach when you're on your way there Eric every time every time I'm on my way there yes it's a very exciting to go you know for many people it's a once in a lifetime experience and even though I get to go digging every summer it never gets old you'll pardon the pun it's it's so it's it's fun it's exciting and you'll never know what you're gonna find the that's the beauty of it what do you use today do you just bring little shovels or do you bring back close with you what do you have we almost never use backhoes what we more usually used to own the surprises people at least in the in the region the Middle East we frequently do it with large pixels if you're digging in your backyard large picture goals wheelbarrows because you've got to move the dirt and there is an awful lot of dirt we do switch them into small hand picks which we call petition but it's like a little rock hammer and travels when we get into the areas where we're digging and coming down on a living surface or for things like that so we always have these little little hammers Luna little puppy she even as we call them and travels hanging from their belts usually but those are more for the delicate operations so the big picture very frequently the order of the day when you're trying to move dental tools we only use dental tools when we're excavating usually a skeleton of course very delicate indeed what is the strangest thing Eric on an excavation you've ever discovered well it was something I thought it was strange I thought I had found the petrified monkey's paw really that that's what I thought I was actually on my first big I was a sophomore in college and it was in the north of Israel Greco Roman size the recreation room of their place hold on a file I was digging it was about nine in the morning no this is this was you know thirty forty years ago those were the days when I dug in a bathing suit and nothing else which of course we wouldn't do today but it was about nine AM when I was getting kind of sunstroke and my my my petition hit a metal object and it flew up in the air and as it went everything went into slow motion and I thought oh look it's green it's a petrified monkey's paw and this by the time it it landed I thought that silly if there weren't any monkeys in northern Israel back in antiquity and indeed when I picked it up it was not a countrified monkey's paw but it was part of a bronze furniture inlaid basically you know when you sit on a chair that has arms if you lay your arm along the chairs or what they had here was a bronze implement that you could grab on to and it was actually in the shape of the Greek god pan home the place with double flute from little horns and the worst of the worst of the chair it completely gone it was tional disintegrated right but the bronze was still there and of course bronze turns green over time so it wasn't a petrified monkey's paw but it was about a two inch high basically a little figurine of pan and the neat thing was that they took it down to Jerusalem immediately and they said we'll put it in a museum and I never saw it again until about four years ago I was in Haifa looking in their museum and they I thought wow that looks a lot like the one I dance used to one of the phones and sure enough it was on loan from the from the museum of Jerusalem to the museum in Haifa I quickly took this selfie of myself with that which is a good thing because when I went back three weeks later it wasn't there anymore I was gonna say you can't keep those things that you find though no we can't that belongs to the country in which we find you have any are they they're watching you no not per se it's kind of like the honor system right will they there are inspectors to come around to make sure you're doing the you know what if they caught you with that in your suitcase going through the airport well they wouldn't touch is I wouldn't do that I know you went by did say let's see if somebody did it be looking in the rest of find time in jail really and your your academic reputation besmirched for all time it's just the the ain't worth up well I better get back to the ark of the covenant that I have been wondering where that was okay let's go back to John in Alaska welcome to the program high Joni thank you very much and thank you Eric hi this is an excellent program couple quick comments and then a question all right you mentioned that the peoples of the mystery of history Steve Collins did a series of books on Israel's interaction over the centuries with different empires and countries you mentioned to see people in the volume on Israel's lost empires I think you can get it from my Bible blessings dot net or something like that and then you mentioned also that the mosaic that was found yeah what from the third century thirty fifth century was the first reference to Jesus Christ I'm Jewish and historic and Roman historian in the first century documented historical existence of Jesus as a person and also his resurrection and the numerous witnesses to his resurrection and that was the first country my question for you well if I'm in route for the mosaic is the first time we find it written and in any archaeological context so yes you're quite right about Joseph is being much earlier but this mosaic is the first time it's ever actually found an archaeological context John what's your question okay that question is yes ma'am do you have been known by other names in different times it seems to have always been known at least by some variance there are some occasions I think it might be in Zechariah where it may be referred to as Maggie don in the Bible but basically it's always been some version today though the in the mount itself in Arabic is known as Tel L. moved to Saint Louis and select amount of the governor there must have been a governor that live there in autumn and times or something but in antiquity it would it always has the name of Megiddo as far as we can tell can you imagine the amazing things Eric that happened during those past years ancient years in those regions just truly remarkable it must've been amazing I mean this is why I do what I do I'm I've always been fascinated since about the age of seven with antiquities and archaeology I mean I always knew this was what I was gonna do but yeah it's absolutely fascinating I think the study the people that came before us and and the sea and in some ways so very similar they are and yet at the same time hello quite different they are do you think Moses really parted the Red Sea well I got a little problem with that because there were so many people that would have left it would have had to hold his arms up for like eight days which is a long time to do that so there is that's a whole nother kettle of fish right in there we did find a cherry on the bottom of the Red Sea did you remember that story there is that story I doubt it so that was run why it's in the news as far as I can tell no truth to it would that there weren't but there isn't so we're still looking for actually the X. so this is one of the absolutely hardest things to try and document you'd think there'd be a lot more evidence for it but there is not infected one of my older books culled from Eden the exile I've got an entire chapter on the excellence and I go through some of the problems we've got in room and why we haven't been able to find it as easily as we might think we could all right let's go next to Carl in the Bronx say Carl thanks for calling go ahead hi George thank you for taking my call and everything you know I just have a few bullets that I wanna you know mentioned that there was a famous Roman battle for at the mounds of make a you know the city of Mickey though and that's the Romans were very clever in defeating the resistance will also there's groups now in in Palestine that are planning that the third temple of David's and also has large mentions the locks of the company in the have they come closer to finding it is if you need your your visit knights Templar take it back to France back centuries ago when they were there and then also I want to mention that there was a major discovery of the tomb of marquis Anthony and Cleopatra in Jordan and whether you own the fall will get involved in that you know all you know was speaking to I know that it's a secret location and are you want you'll be going over to Jordan to get involved with that so there's quite a lot of history of that area and I think before the battle of Armageddon actually occurs if he is the third temple of David has to be built and we offer the problem has to be found and the all this is all in prophecy okay so I I want to know what we should check on some of these areas that I've touched on will you you certainly touched on quite a bit there first I think maybe you were thinking of the battle of Masada that the Romans that's it yes exactly so that would be at about seventy three AD this tomb of you said Anthony and Cleopatra in Jordan that news to me I haven't heard of that nor do I know anybody working on that I'll look into that the ark of the covenant there's all kinds of possibilities as to where it could be five minutes and some billionaires house one thing more than likely I actually think there's a very good chance that was accidentally destroyed when Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem in five eighty six BC because he lists all the stuff that he took back to Babylon and he does not list the ark of the covenant it's possible that it was spirited out of the city before them but really it hadn't been seen almost since the day is almost since the days of Solomon so I don't think it's under the Temple Mount I don't think it's in the C. O. P. a I don't think it's over in Jordan the question is then where is it or does it still exist as I say I tend towards the theory that if it's not hidden away somewhere that it may well have been accidentally destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar and his men or did.

"Eric Klein with this is book digging up Armageddon Eric cord to see people this is a good question maybe you can tell me the Lucy peoples or their group of about nine people that invaded Egypt twice nine people nine nine groups nine groups okay they come in what we would consider to be twelve oh seven BC and then again on eleven seventy seven BC the Egyptian sold about them they actually tell us the names there the less the the sort of the pleasure of the dent in the equis the terrorists will shut down this checklist basically the only group that we know the Palestra or the Philippines the elders are still argued about impact we're not even sure where they came from it's thought maybe Sicily Sardinia maybe some people from Greece all we know is that the Egyptians say that they swept across what we would now consider to be Turkey and Cyprus and Syria and then they came down the coast of the Levant and attacked Egypt then there was a battle in twelve oh seven and then there was there were two battles in eleven seventy seven a naval battle and land battle the Egyptian people see people every time but it was a pyrrhic victory Egypt was never the same again and the sea peoples contributed to the collapse that we talked about earlier in eleven seventy seven it used to be that the sea peoples by themselves were blamed entirely for the collapse of the Bronze Age but now they're seen more as the combination of of both victims and oppressors they are not necessarily completely the calls but they might have been one of the symptoms along with drought famine and other things so Lucy people's or one of history's mysteries and if I had a million dollars I would go and look and see if I can find a site where they came from and then excavated when you log to have lived during that time period just to be a witness loosely that that's my favorite period of time I would love to live back then but there's no way I would've lived more than twenty four forty eight hours I would be totally dead right away but you know it would be a great twenty four hours why would you be in debt so quickly what would happen well I probably would walk to the nearest cliff with my eyesight okay no way I would have survived had some invader would've hatch you did you are anything like that well that's true there's always that chance all right let's take some calls I'm going to treat for you you've got a call here from the reason Kentucky who actually believes that she is the reincarnated Cleopatra so if you have any Egyptian questions Hillary Eric now's the time you'll get it straight from the horse's mouth thank you Louise thank you so much I'm so excited about listening to this program because I have a question for your kids all right I was in each of several years ago and we toured from Cairo down to apple symbol and back when we were at the packed full of cheese a member of the tour guide S. R. director this time Quincy people the Israelis were enslaved in Egypt the tour guide director who is egyptologists with a doctor or doctors degree he said no Egypt did not have to slaves and so I've been studying every since the interactive figure out what is he talking about I heard on the radio station a man saying the Assyrians were in charge of each about the time that the Israelis were inflamed and in the Bible and see a chapter fifty two is that my people went there this year we have been playing field and the and the book of exodus chapter fourteen images that the Israelis were descended from the bail bail with the god of the experience I would like for the day your gift to give his opinion about what this is all about if he can can you take us back a little bit Eric do you know anything about that it sounds like we're we're getting a couple different areas all mixed together here the pyramids themselves are built in about twenty six hundred twenty five hundred BC during the old kingdom period they weren't built it looks like not place lives but by what we would consider today to be pencils basically in the offseason no one for harvesters in they would have been employed to work on the pyramids and that's about well a good seventy eight hundred years before the Israelites under Joseph ever even came in and by the time we've got the Israelites leaving during the exodus under Moses the payments would already have been about a thousand years old now the Assyrians are going to be another well depends with the Syrians you're talking about because there's actually three different types but usually the ones that are being referred to are the newest here in flint new Assyrians and they're going to be living in the first millennium BC which is gonna be again five six seven eight hundred years after the Israelites or wandering around so we've got quite a span of time included in your question from the pyramids in the middle of the third millennium to the Assyrians and the first win him are these Syrians what would be modern day Syria today there are more what would be modern day Iraq but yes verging into parts of Syria and one interesting time period to be sure next up we go to jail in Long Island New York hello Joseph go ahead yeah hi Eric two questions one would be on the Nile background you think it was a friend that had a different face to it than it does now and and and what what would you say about the mile background and also the palaces as the director then from movies such as that movie with Angelina Jolie on Alexander just the role of power foods and how they had sent towards flight statues of lions and falcons and and just like it just seems a little bit bizarre really opulent state presented that might not of band widely out there what was just concentrated on the panels right so let me take your first question first the Nile has changed course slightly upon occasion over the years so that actually from satellite you can see the earlier the earlier of course of the Nile but for the most part it's it's been you know pretty close to where it is today it always was the life blood of Egypt of course in fact just like the people Mesopotamia the tigris and Euphrates so the Egyptians have the Nile and of course the annual flooding this is what hope their civilization to succeed so that they have a pretty good life there as for the palaces it really depends what time period you're talking about but for the most part yes they are they could be quite opulence of course the movies tend to blend together different periods but certainly the the bronzes palaces just before the collapse they were they were quite opulent from them again if you went in to see the Persian palaces Persepolis phone password guns and such at the time of Alexander the great those were extremely opulent so you know the you know if you're able to be the top one percent back then life was not so bad actually the Niles not too deep the NDP supporters thirty six feet the you can't even get a big ship through there correct interesting let's go to Mary in New Jersey taken away merry I have a question for your guest right I was just sitting here today and they're going on the voice Google about the legend of rock the sun god and they said they found a sun temple which was originally like mud brick and then they said they were talking about the legend that he would ride through this five on chariot and it had twelve wheels and was pulled by seven horses transaction I'm very similar to when a larger was taken out by chariot of fire and I think if they said that was pulled by horses this sounds similar one of these myths have elements in common let's put it that way with the Hebrew mythology and Egyptian mythology and even Greek mythology so and and having chariots pulled by horses are fairly common theme so yeah there there been a number of people who have studied such things but you know there are similarities but also differences and one of the things that archaeologists and and ancient historians ask is whether these were separate independent inventions or whether they influenced each other why did they detect wrong with a falcons head Eric what do you think that I do not know you'd have to ask you real life fully fledged Egyptologist but the the gods and goddesses of Egypt or are all portrayed with various in about Boone has felt compelled to tell his things like that so I don't know why each one had specific ones but if you get an Egyptologist on your program they will be able to tell you what I found fascinating about your book digging up Armageddon is the fact that in many areas of the book you tied the past in with the present I found that fascinating yes I have a lot of fun doing that in fact and I do think that were able to tie things and things to kind of repeat but I also found when I was looking at the people that were digging up Megiddo the their shoulders weren't that different from us today the the tools and the techniques that they were using were kind of in their infancy at the time in the biblical archaeology has only just begun but some of the things that they were doing or what we do today with laying out squares that are five meters by five meters and digging down until we see a change in soil and even taking aerial photographs of the people of Megiddo and the balloon that they filled full of hydrogen and then attach the camera to it so they took some of the earliest aerial photographs of any sites in the region so they were I would say head of their time but they were right at the forefront archaeology and their mind when they started digging in nineteen twenty five nineteen twenty six that was only three or four years after Howard Carter had found king tut because king tut was first found in nineteen twenty two so we're right in that era when now when you started investigating and when you went to McGee told up on the top and you looked around what do you see around it so what you can see from the top let's see you see mount Tabor for one thing you see it let's see mount Gilboa you can look off to the towards hyphal on the one side you can see Mazzara almost directly across the valley you can also certain days you can see the so called secret Air Force base that's right there it's not so secret to the people living there because we were treated to almost daily sights of F. sixteens taking off street vertically so we would look at each other girl that's not so secret we can see it right there but the one thing that you really get that I was still every morning and admittedly I'm a bit of a romantic but as I said earlier we would get up at the side of about five AM the sun would come up over mount Tabor in the distance it was just absolutely amazing and I could swear that I could hear the marching of of of men and the you know the the funder of horses foods because you had so many armies come through the crusaders on the Mamelukes on the Mongols and the Romans and Alexander the great and all of them so for me every morning I would just sit up there and kind of imagine the waves of history coming right behind me was very much a magical moments and and then we would start excavating and it would get even more interesting absolutely first time caller Benjamin in Los Angeles Hey man go ahead thank you for your call I believe their venture business saying right now leading the world into a wall or tree every time there's better the current economic collapse throughout history is always going to call a wider war that's the only way to restart the economy back up I believe that we were already in that state ten years ago all they did was borrow a ton of money to push the can down the road and here we are today down the road I can almost almost feel that there's a virus just that it will get caught that they use to blame blame us why because they're gonna collapse could this be our beginning Eric of Armageddon it you know frankly I hope not I hope all the people who have predicted end times in Armageddon are wrong my gosh yes it is I hope so too it's one thing to write about it it would be another thing entirely to live through it so what's the next project for you the next project to stir up to eleven seventy seven bringing up to speed there's more scientific evidence for drought back at the end of the Bronze Age from all kinds of different places lakes of the man's cave stalagmites and stalactites from and then this book on the resiliency and what it takes to rebuild your civilization after that I don't know I may go for looking at another site see if there is another dig that has an archives that's full and see if I can reconstruct what happened elsewhere because frankly it was a lot of fun I found digging through America it was much like actual archaeology except I was digging through paper instead of digging through dirt Christian Tulsa Oklahoma before the break Christopher go ahead Hey yeah I wanted to ask gas about a location you know location location location Armageddon we were all taught in Sunday school the final battle so you know you would mentioned Napoleon comments.

R. director this time Quincy people readers rallies were enslaved in Egypt the tour guide director who was egyptologists with a doctor or doctors degree he said no Egypt did not have slaves and so I've been studying every since then tried to figure out what is he talking about I heard on the radio station a man saying the Assyrians were in charge of each about the time that the Israelis were inflamed and then the Bible Alycia chapter fifty two is that my people went there this year for the fly you feel any and the book of exodus chapter fourteen images that the Israelis were descended from the bail bail was the god of the experience I would like for the day your gift to give his opinion about what this is all about yes he can can you take us back a little bit Eric do you know anything about that it sounds like we're we're getting a couple different areas all mixed together here the pyramids themselves are built in about twenty six hundred twenty five hundred BC during the old kingdom period they weren't built it looks like not place lives but by what we would consider today to be peasants basically in the offseason no one for harvesters in they would have been employed to work on the pyramids and that's about well a good seventy eight hundred years before the Israelites under Joseph ever even came in and by the time we've got the Israelites leaving during the exodus under Moses the pyramids would already have been about a thousand years old now the Assyrians are going to be another well depends what the Syrians you're talking about because there's actually three different types but usually the ones that are being referred to are the newest here in for a new Assyrians and they're going to be living in the first millennium BC which is gonna be again five six seven eight hundred years after the Israelites or wandering around so we've got quite a span of time included in your questions from the pyramids in the middle of the third millennium to the Assyrians and the first one yeah are these Syrians what would be modern day Syria today there are more what would be modern day Iraq but yes bridging into parts of Syria and one interesting time period to be sure next up we go to jail in Long Island New York hello Joseph go ahead yeah hi Eric two questions one would be on the Nile background you think it was a friend that had a different face to it than it does now and and and what what would you say about the Nile background and also the palaces as depicted in from movies such as that movie with Angelina Jolie on Alexander is the role of palaces and how they had sent towards white statues of lions and falcons and and just like it just seems a little bit of sorry opulence they presented that might not of ban widely out there what was just concentrated on the power of right so let me take your first question first the Nile has changed course slightly upon occasion over the years so that actually from satellite you can see the earlier the earlier of course of the Nile but for the most part it's it's been you know pretty close to where it is today it always was the life blood of Egypt of course in fact just like the people Mesopotamia the tigris and Euphrates so the Egyptians have the Nile and of course the annual flooding is what is what hope their civilization to succeed so that they have a pretty good life there as for the palaces it really depends what time period you're talking about but for the most part yes they are they could be quite opulence of course the movies tend to blend together different periods but certainly the the Bronze Age palaces just before the collapse they were they were quite opulent from them again if you went in to see the Persian palaces Persepolis phone password guns and such at the time of Alexander the great those were extremely opulent so you know the you know if you're able to be the top one percent back then a life was not so bad exactly the Niles not too deep the deepest part is thirty six feet the you can't even get a big ship through there right interesting let's go to Mary in New Jersey taken away merry hi I have a question for your guest right I was just sitting here today and they're going on the voice Google about the legend of rock the sun god and they said they found a sun temple which was originally like mud brick and then they said they were talking about the legend that he would ride to the spy on chariot and it had twelve wheels and was pulled by seven horses transaction very similar to when a larger was taken off by chariot of fire and I think if they said that was pulled by horses does that sound similar one of these myths have elements in common let's put it that way with the Hebrew mythology and the gypsum result in even Greek mythology so and and having chariots pulled by horses is a fairly common themes so yeah there's there been a number of people who have studied such things but you know there are similarities but also differences and one of the things that archaeologists and ancient historians ask is whether these were separate independent inventions or whether they influenced each other why did they detect raw with a falcons head Eric what do you think that I do not know you'd have to ask you real life fully fledged Egyptologist but the the gods and goddesses of Egypt or are all portrayed with various in about Boone has felt compelled to count heads things like that so I don't know why each one had specific ones but if you get an Egyptologist on your program they will be able to tell you what I saw Sasson eighteen about your book digging up Armageddon is the fact that in many areas of the book you tied the past in with the present I found that fascinating yes I had a lot of fun doing that in fact and I do think that were able to tie things and things to kind of repeat but I also found when I was looking at the people that were digging up Megiddo the their shoulders weren't that different from us today the the tools and the techniques that they were using were kind of in their infancy at the time in the biblical archaeology has only just begun but some of the things that they were doing or what we do today with laying out squares that are five meters by five meters and digging down until we see a change in soil and even taking aerial photographs of the people of Megiddo and the balloon that they filled full of hydrogen and then attach the camera to it so they took some of the earliest aerial photographs of any sites in the region so they were I would say head of their time but they were right at the forefront archaeology amber mine when they started digging in nineteen twenty five nineteen twenty six that was only three or four years after Howard Carter had found king tut because king tut was first found in nineteen twenty two so we're right in that era when when you started investigating and when you went to McGee told up on the top and you looked around what do you see around so what you can see from the top let's see you see mount Tabor for one thing you see let's see mount Gilboa you can look off to the towards hyphal on the one side you can see nazara almost directly across the valley you can also certain days you can see the so called secret Air Force base that's right there it's not so secret to the people living there because we were treated to almost daily sights of F. sixteens taking off street vertically so we would look at each other girl that's not so secret we can see it right there but the one thing that you really get that I was still every morning and admittedly I'm a bit of a romantic but as I said earlier we would get up at the side of about five AM the sun would come up over mount Tabor in the distance it was just absolutely amazing and I could swear that I could hear the marching of of of men and the you know the the funder of horses hooves because you had so many armies come through the crusaders on the Mamelukes on the Mongols and the Romans and Alexander the great and all of them so for me every morning I would just sit up there and kind of imagine the waves of history coming right by me it was

"And even political divides wouldn't let anyone make such lofty claims, but Eric Klein has the research chops to back it up. He's a professor of sociology and director of the institute for public knowledge at NYU has a number of fabulous groundbreaking books to his credit already and his new one is called palaces for the people how social infrastructure can help fight inequality polarization and the decline of civic life. He also writes about President Trump promoting what he calls antisocial, infrastructure and more. So Eric welcome back to WNYC. So nice to be here. Thank you. So this idea of social. Infrastructure, the physical places that shape the way we interact really came out of your first book heatwave, which was in analysis of the nineteen ninety five. Chicago heat Ray wave you've hit re written several books since then what is social infrastructure, and what brought you back to the topic now. Yeah. Well, social infrastructure are the places that shape our interactions put quite simply, and it's just as real as the infrastructure. We rely on to carry water or electricity or people in transit crowded or not later. Not when social infrastructure is robust. It makes it much more likely that we will engage one another casually informally or or an unplanned way at least two relationships and social bonds. But when we neglect the social infrastructure, we grow more, isolated and alone. Give our listeners a couple of examples. I know libraries feature prominently in the book, what do you call? That social infrastructure and what else goes in that category? So libraries, public parks and playgrounds or places where people get to know each other quite well, childcare centers athletic fields in the commercial sector, obviously places like coffee shops, and taverns beauty salons can do that. But the more open they are in the more accessible the better. They'll be we know from that starbuck story in Philadelphia this year that a Starbucks can clearly very quickly turned into a hostile environment. I came back to this topic after hurricane sandy, you know, in some ways, it's appropriate that we're talking about this on September eleventh because sandy wasn't event that introduced to us a new set of security concerns. I started writing about it right away and wound up serving as the research director for President Obama's rebuild by design competition, which was an idea to try to generate exciting ideas for twenty-first-century infrastructure. The challenge for us was how do we not only? Make New York City safe. But also make it a better place to be every day. So for example, you visited a librarian east New York, and you found that the staff there was going above and beyond what people might think of as librarian work. Oh my goodness. Librarians are doing so many different kinds of work that I think most of us don't appreciate librarians are providing early literacy education for the youngest members of our community. They're hosting virtual bowling leagues on XBox for older people who might otherwise end up isolated. They're doing instruction for English as a second language, and they're dealing with a lot of problems that get pushed into libraries because we haven't invested enough in those other programs. So every morning, you will find people who have who struggle with mental illness who are homeless a who are looking for continued ship or who are in schools that no longer have libraries internally because we've cut the budget. They're all. Being sent to our branch, libraries, what's anti-social infrastructure? Well, there's nothing so antisocial as the wall. It's a place that that further, devise and separates us. It's the most crude kind of infrastructure we have. And so I I think it is really time for us to start thinking about what infrastructure could deliver us the benefits we need not just for protection, but also for for bridging divisions there, there are certain kinds of places that make it much more likely that we can recognize the humanity in people with whom we disagree politically. But they're also kinds of certain kinds of infrastructures that help those of us who live in the segregated and divided society gets no people from other backgrounds and places. It's such a central work. Is there across the political divide social infrastructure that you would site then if a wall is antisocial infrastructure, you know, just because you go to a library. Well, people. Tend to live in Abraham with politically like minded people increasingly in this country. So that's not across the divide social infrastructure in that way. Do you have examples of things that are absolutely? And you know, I grew up in Chicago. I lived in New York City for twenty years, but Chicago is such a segregated city in the solution to the problems of segregation Chicago's not to just spend time in your neighborhood public library, unless there are other people who are who are there. But there are certain kinds of places that bring us together, you know, I teach in university at schools and college campuses community college campuses such essential social infrastructures for bringing people from different walks of life together in a place where they will make consequential decisions about how to spend their time. What to learn what to do next and relationships will naturally grow in places like that, my my son who's great soccer player plays on the metropolitan oval club in mass, Beth queens, and it's. It's an amazing place. One of the oldest soccer clubs in New York City. And there are people from all over the region who get together several days a week. We were there because we love our children. We want to watch them play. But in the process of spending all this time together, we get to know each other and build relationships. Even though we disagree about so many things Eric Lydenburg with us from the NYU institute for public knowledge, he directs that and he's the author now palaces for the people how social infrastructure can help fight inequality polarization and the decline of civic life, and we can take a few phone calls for him. If you have a really good example of social infrastructure in your life is a a park library public poll. Call in and tell us your favorite place to not be atomised in your life. And how the infrastructure helps you do it. Or if you have a question two one two four three three WNYC two one two four three three nine six. S nine to one social infrastructure concept. That's clear book and always a big topic. With our listeners is broken windows. Policing. And that's not when mayor de Blasio came in running against stop and frisk stop and frisk in the Bloomberg Rick Kelly way was ended. But he's still supported was you did what's called broken windows policing. Sometimes still controversial why do you bring up broken windows policing, which is a police in practice rather than physical infrastructure in the context of your book. I bring it up because if you look at the original broken windows argument that has been called the bible of the criminal Justice system, the inspiration for stop and frisk and zero tolerance policing if you really look at it closely, you find that the argument begins with the idea that the this process begins where houses get abandoned. A windows get broken, then you get graffiti and the disorder for some reason the larger crime more serious. Crime follows the small crime like the graffiti broken windows, because people get used to thinking that this order will not be prosecuted, they perceive the neighborhood to be a place where no one's in control. And so that program became the justification for zero tolerance policing, which has been so destructive for so many communities in the city and beyond. But the truth is we failed to recognize the very simple beginning of that idea. If a house is abandoned if a window is broken what if we just repaired them. So recently, I read about this in his book, one of the most exciting experiments in the social sciences comes from guy named Charles Brandis. He was at Penn he's now at Columbia epidemiology, and they had this multidisciplinary team that looked at the city of Philadelphia. They've tens of thousands of vacant lots. Abandoned buildings they experimented and said what happens if you repair some of them just fix them up make them into nice pocket park support of the buildings. Well, what happens is remarkable you get declines in violent crime and gun crime in particular of more than thirty percents compared to the places that weren't treated and you reduce stress because when people walk by the treated places, they don't have their heart rates. Scott jump a beat. It's it's an incredible. So in other we still have enough of an abandoned they're trying to use every space to build more housing in New York. Do we still have an abandoned building problem, and is the de Blasio administration not addressing it in the way, you prescribe? So I can't say. Specifically, which the Blasios during about abandoned buildings in New York City in the book, I should say has a lot to say about New York City because my researcher, but it also covers cities around the country and around the world. I do believe that their neighborhoods in Brooklyn, and the Bronx that still have abandoned houses and plays an empty lots in places that need to be treated up at the larger point is there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions of places like this are around the country, and we can do so much more to reduce crime by treating those places as opposed to punishing people. We'll take your calls for Eric Kleinberg on social infrastructure right after this. I'm Alison Stewart, and I'm excited to spend the afternoon with you as the host of a new show from WNYC called all of it with Alison Stewart, we'll dig into what culture reveals about the culture, we'll meet makers doers, creators and talk about the what?

Who was also a victim she had a more to say she had a fair amount of time I wanna to share with you the majority what she said info Just as. A bit of conversation because I think it is worth our time I find the metoo movement to be a very peculiar thing because people try to get into it Be a part. Of it because they understand or believe that victimhood is status and therefore a currency if you will And why do indeed dismissed those people who are so flippant I don't dismiss any. Of these women We have to be sure that we're honest people there's a difference between the people who are looking. For attention and the people who have been abused and we shouldn't discount the people who've been abused it's. It's crazy when we somehow so get into the conversations that. We forget the humanity along the way Here's Ali Ray Smith Nineteen ninety eight Nineteen ninety nine Two thousand Two thousand and four two thousand eleven two thousand thirteen two thousand and fourteen thousand and fifteen Two thousand.
