Herschel Shanks and the Ossuary of Doom!

Ralph the Sacred River fingers the Biblical Archaeology Review for launching the spate of high-profile forged antiquities.

Readers may have been wondering if I was exaggerating yesterday when I pointed the finger at Hershel Shanks as a principal, although unwitting, enabler of the trade in stolen and forged antiquities. It is worth going back 20 years or so and examining the role that Shanks and Biblical Archaeology Review played in the case of the Ivory Pomegranate
