Our 35th Anniversary
With this issue we begin our year-long celebration of our 35th anniversary.
When we realized that our 35th anniversary would be coming hot on the heels of BAR’s 200th issue, our staff began discussing how to recognize these two milestones differently. We decided that while the 200th issue would focus on the major finds, photos and stories that had filled the magazine over the years, the 35th anniversary would be an opportunity to look beyond the pages of BAR at the many ways the Biblical Archaeology Society (BAS) has developed and expanded our mission to bring the latest in Biblical and archaeological research to the general public, and to see how the field has changed in the decades since we published that first issue in March 1975.
