Har Karkom (Israël): Archaeological Discoveries on a Holy Mountain in the Desert of Exodus
Emmanuel Anati discusses the possible location of Mt. Sinai
Where is Mt. Sinai? The investigation and study of Har Karkom has been the life work of Emmanuel Anati, an 83-year-old Italian archaeologist who has been documenting finds at the site for more than 30 years, as reported in the March/April 2014 issue of BAR.
Anati delivered the lecture “Har Karkom–Archaeological Discoveries on a Holy Mountain in the Desert of Exodus” at the recent Out of Egypt: Israel’s Exodus Between Text and Memory, History and Imagination conference hosted by Calit2’s Qualcomm Institute at UC San Diego.
