lIt's absolutely amazing to see the pictures of the beautiful artifacts and read about them.

Yes I quite enjoy learning about different Biblical countries.

Highly recommend. The study of archeology and history give us a better understanding of our Biblical ancestors.

Having seen some of the artifacts, such as the Standard of Ur in the British Museum, I personally found this course to be interesting.
