Lycoming College's Dr. William Dever, distinguished visiting professor of archaeology, was a featured scholar in "Back to the Beginning," a two-part series that aired on ABC Dec. 21 and 28. During the series, correspondent Christiane Amanpour retraced some of the stories and mysteries of the Bible as she explored places that are common to Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
Each summer, Dever and his wife, Dr. Pamela Gaber, professor of archaeology and Judaic studies at Lycoming, direct the College's archaeological field school in Idalion, Cyprus.
