Diving for the Clotilda: The Archaeology, History, and Legacy of the Last Known Slave Ship
By: ArchaeologyTV. Published: 10/17/2022

Explore the wreck of the infamous Clotilda slave ship discovered in 2019 in the Mobile River in Alabama. You’ll hear from the archaeologists who dove into the Mobile River to explore, document, and study the wreck; the historians who highlighted the historical significance of the wreck and presented the narratives of the victims and the villains involved; and the descendants whose lives and stories connect the present with the past and are living testimonies of the African men, women, and children who were brought to the United States against their will and who hoped to one day return to their homes across the Atlantic. In 1860, more than 50 years after the international slave trade was outlawed in the United States, the Clotilda, carrying over 100 captive Africans – men, women, and children – sailed up the Mobile River in Alabama under the cover of night. Knowing full well that what he was doing was illegal, the ship’s captain, after unloading his captives, burned and scuttled the ship. In 2019, almost 160 years later, the wreck was located. Since then, archaeologists and historians have been studying its contents – a snapshot of the ship at the moment of its chaotic destruction. But the legacy of the ship isn’t just the underwater shipwreck and the objects found on board. The enslaved Africans that arrived on the Clotilda and were later liberated by the Emancipation Proclamation founded their own community, Africatown, just a few miles north of Mobile. -- On Saturday, October 15, 2022 the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) presented Diving for the Clotilda: The Archaeology, History, and Legacy of the Last Known Slave Ship in celebration of International Archaeology Day 2022. #IAD2022 #Clotilda #archaeology Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) The AIA promotes archaeological inquiry and public understanding of the material record of the human past to foster an appreciation of diverse cultures and our shared humanity. The AIA supports archaeologists, their research and its dissemination, and the ethical practice of archaeology. The AIA educates people of all ages about the significance of archaeological discovery and advocates for the preservation of the world’s archaeological heritage.

AIA Archaeology Hour with Krish Seetah: New Approaches to the Archaeology of Disease
By: ArchaeologyTV. Published: 09/22/2022

"New Approaches to the Archaeology of Disease: Climate, Imperialism, and Malaria in the Indian Ocean" Please note that this presentation includes images of human remains. From 1855 to 1859, the island of Mauritius, located near Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, produced nearly 10% of the world’s sugar. With a landmass smaller than the size of the state of Rhode Island, the transformations that resulted from this intensification in sugar cane production were dramatic. Krish will talk about a series of malaria epidemics that plagued the island from the 1850s onward and how archaeology can help contemporary studies of vector-borne disease.

Season 8 Episode 12 Strata: Portraits of Humanity, September 2022 (A scientific and ethical commentary on the disposition of human remains exhumed from a construction site in Lyons, France) Emma Bouvard-Mor, an archaeo-anthropologist of Lyon, France, offers a commentary on the different possible destinations of the human remains she exhumes, based on sometimes conflicting scientific and ethical expectations. These remains are bones from a Revolutionary Period (late 1700s) church cemetery, which had been removed from their graves and placed in an ossuary pit during a previous phase of construction. Now they must be removed, and thus will become scientific data as well as traces of people who still demand respect.

The Recent JEOPARDY! Bible Controversy Explained by a Biblical Scholar | XKV8R
By: XKV8R — Robert R. Cargill, PhD. Published: 11/21/2022

Dr. Bob Cargill, Assoc. Professor of Classics and Biblical Studies at the University of Iowa, explains the controversy that took place during the recent JEOPARDY! Tournament of Champions episode involving a poorly-written (and let's face it, factually incorrect) Final Jeopardy! clue that changed the outcome of the match, denying victory to the contestant who actually got the correct 'question.' The video discusses the issue of the Apostle Paul's supposed authorship of the Epistle to the Hebrews, his authorship of his letter to the Romans, and posits a theory as to how the writers of this particular Jeopardy! clue got this wrong.


Ancient Origins of Religious Conflict | CLSA:1415 | University of Iowa Department of Classics Course
By: XKV8R — Robert R. Cargill, PhD. Published: 11/15/2022

--Join Dr. Bob Cargill in his annual University of Iowa course, Ancient Origins of Religious Conflict (CLSA:1415). This course is an examination of ancient origins of the world's modern religions, their diversity, and religious conflict worldwide; special attention is paid to ancient Mesopotamian and Mediterranean religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, international events, fundamentalism, and protest movements. This Diversity and Inclusion general education course examines the classical and ancient origins of the world’s modern religions and religious traditions, their diversity, and religious conflict worldwide, focusing specifically on flashpoints where different religious traditions intersect in conflict around the world. By understanding the origins and basic tenets of the world’s religions, we can better understand the fundamentals underlying each religious conflict. Each course module examines an area of religious interaction, reviews the backgrounds of present conflicts, and explores ways in which an understanding of the religious aspects of each conflict can potentially lead to conflict resolution. All the while, students learn the basic tenets of the various religious traditions. At the end of this course, students will be able to: --Intelligently discuss the ancient origins of modern religious conflicts that define our world. --Examine the spread of religious traditions geographically. --Compare and contrast ideological similarities between ancient Mesopotamian, Mediterranean, and modern religions. --Identify the basic tenets of the world’s major religions and how they are practiced today. --Witness the religious, racial, ethnic, linguistic, economic, and political diversity of the peoples engaged in various conflicts. --Evaluate whether religion is the actual cause of many of the world’s conflicts.

What Happened to the Ark of the Covenant? The Hezekiah's Reform Theory | Tower of Bible Podcast
By: XKV8R — Robert R. Cargill, PhD. Published: 11/14/2022

In this episode, Dr. Bob Cargill and Jordan Jones discuss the disappearance of the Ark of the Covenant, and offer a new theory that typically does not get discussed when debating the fate of the ark. Specifically, Dr. Cargill argues that King Hezekiah "made it disappear" during his religious reforms in the 8th century BCE, likely by simply melting it down. Listen to the argument from the literary evidence, while learning about other objects of veneration created by the ancient Israelites like the Jerusalem temple, bamot (high places of worship), matsebot (standing stones), asherah (either a sacred tree/pole or the deity Asherah herself), and the Nehushtan, a bronze serpent that God commanded Moses to craft as a remedy to snakebites. Bible passages discussed: Genesis 28:18, 22 Genesis 31:45 Genesis 35:14 Exodus 25:10–22 Exodus 26:1, 31 Numbers 7:89 Numbers 10:35–36 Numbers 21:6–9 Joshua 4:20–22 Joshua 6:3–4, 11–13 1 Samuel 4:3–4 1 Samuel 5:1–3 1 Samuel 6:2, 11–12 2 Samuel 6:6–13 2 Samuel 22:11 1 Kings 6:1, 23, 27–29, 32 1 Kings 7:29–36 1 Kings 8:6–7 2 Kings 14:7, 22, 25 2 Kings 18:2–4, 14–16, 27 2 Kings 19:1, 14–18, 20–36 2 Kings 24:13 2 Chronicles 36:18 Isaiah 37:14, 35 Jeremiah 3:16–17 Psalm 132:8


New Course: CLAS:6290 — Media Training for Humanities Scholars | University of Iowa
By: XKV8R — Robert R. Cargill, PhD. Published: 10/27/2022

This is a new graduate seminar offered by Dr. Robert Cargill, Associate Professor of Classics and Biblical Studies at the University of Iowa. The humanities are comprised of multiple disciplines and sub-disciplines, each requiring years of specialized training. Unfortunately, among the many research methodologies taught to graduate students, dealing with the popular media hasn’t traditionally been among them. And yet, speaking to the media—from newspaper reporters, to television interviews, to appearing on documentaries as experts—is an increasingly important part of scholarship for communicating one’s research to the world, to fundraising, to getting a job. The ability to write clearly and speak to the public effectively is increasingly important in our media-driven world. This course teaches students how to “do” publicly-engaged scholarship. The course will introduce students to the concept of public scholarship in general, providing a behind-the-scenes look into a side of the academy that most successful professional scholars have learned to master when promoting their published research.


Review of History Channel's COLOSSEUM: COMMODUS (Ep 7) | Tower of Bible Podcast
By: XKV8R — Robert R. Cargill, PhD. Published: 09/15/2022

In this podcast, Dr. Robert Cargill and Dr. Jordan Smith review episode 7 of HISTORY's limited documentary series COLOSSEUM, which focuses on COMMODUS—the emperor who fought as a gladiator. In addition to commenting on the episode's writing, research, directing, acting, editing, and overall production, the hosts discuss the son of the Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, whose reign became a turning point for Rome and the Colosseum. Commodus's narcissism and paranoia led to persistent conflicts with the senate and ultimately to his assassination and the official blotting out of his memory. The discussion ends with a tribute to the series narrator, Campbell Scott, and a reflection on the 1992 Cameron Crowe film "Singles" in which Scott stars, which (quite coincidentally) celebrates 30 years since its release this week.
