Yigael Yadin Finds a Bama at Beer-Sheva
On my last visit to Jerusalem, I stopped in to see Yigael Yadinas I always do. It was a fascinating houras it always is.
This time, he told me how he found what he believes to be a bamaa destroyed by King Josiahand found it in someone elses dig.
I sat enthralled, listening to this great scholarlean, crisp, precise and articulate, puffing his pipe, eyes dancing, jumping up to pull a book from the shelf to find a quotation or drive home a point.
His claim to have found the bama is sure to be disputed by the Beer-Sheva team of excavators. But that is for a later issue of the BAR, not this one.
