Have the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah been found?

Have the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrah been found? Two Biblical archaeologists say yes but disagree as to where. Dr. Steven Collins provides a video below with his reasons why he believes this site is correct. Dr. Bryant G. Wood who is excavating a different site disagrees and provides another site in this excellent article.

Watch the video and see what you think. As Biblical Chronology enthusiasts we are excited by the excellent work being carried on today as the Bible regains the respect of archaeologists lost during the 1960’s.

By the way Todd Bolens blog gives the following reasons for disagreeing with Dr. Steven Collins

Tall el-Hammam does not match the occupational profile for Sodom given in the Bible.

  • Middle Bronze (2000-1500 BC): not occupied
  • Late Bronze (1500-1200 BC): not occupied
  • Iron Age (1200-600 BC): not occupied
