Sodom: Discovery of a Lost City

Steven Collins, PhD
Dean, College of Archaeology, Trinity Southwest University
Director, Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project, Jordan

Where is the city of Sodom? For over a hundred years explorers and scholars have tried to locate the most infamous city in the history of the world. Beginning in 2001, Dr. Steven Collins began researching the whereabouts of Sodom and Gomorrah. He started with the biblical text and determined the location of Sodom based on geographical clues found in the book of Genesis—an area just NE of the Dead Sea. With a team of top archaeologists and specialists, the Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project (TeHEP) quickly became one of the largest and most important archaeological digs in the southern Levant. Directed by Dr. Collins, TeHEP is unearthing the largest, most enduring and powerful Bronze Age city-state in the region, replete with a massive destruction layer from the Middle Bronze Age, the time of Abraham. Multiple lines of evidence now confirm that Tall el-Hammam is, in fact, biblical Sodom!

Steven Collins is one of the world’s foremost biblical archaeologists. He has been researching and lecturing in the field of Near Eastern archeology and biblical studies for more than 30 years. His background as a field archaeologist and Bible scholar gives him a commanding grasp of the issues involved in researching the historical accuracy of the biblical record from both the historical and scientific perspectives.
