Archaeology can not be used to prove Biblical stories. It can help illuminate how people lived during the times of the Old and New Testaments.
Heritage Discoveries is a division of Heritage Education Programs. Since 1998 we has created field trip and classroom programs.
Our newest program is a Living History field trip to a Historic One Room Schoolhouse
Field trip programs, at the Center for Near Eastern Archaeology, at La Sierra University, in Riverside

Come to the Historic One Room San Timoteo Schoolhouse for a Living History Experience with lessons and games from 1900. Lessons will be taught in period style, to give students a vivid impression of how American children received an education a hundred years ago. Students will experience how children learned, played at school. They will explore the similarities and differences of being a student in a one-room schoolhouse versus attending their own modern school.
In our four hour field trip programs students excavate in one of our simulated archaeological sites.
Archaeology is a scientific endeavor that uses skills from many disciplines. Archaeology can not be used to “prove” the Biblical accounts. It can shed light on how ancient people lived, and put Biblical accounts in better context .
"The Program provided our children with an up-close and first hand experience of what true archaeology is and the valuable answers it provides about our past. It was a rich and rewarding use of our instructional time."

"The site was divided into units, they were taught the correct terminology, and used actual scientific tools. Attention to detail gave students the feel of being real archaeologists for the day. We will keep coming back."

Deuteronomy 2:19 - "And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, (Ammonite) distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession." KJV
Three thousand year old artifacts, and among those your students can find in this site, representing an Ammonite house from the time of King David
The Roman Empire's roads and sea lanes enabled people and goods to travel from the deserts and hill of the Near East to the shores and hills of Britain. This allowed an glass industry, in the Near East to spread their goods and technology across the Empire and allowed Apostles and evangelists to spread the Gospel.
At this site students will excavate a glass workshop with the remains of glass melting furnaces and an annealing oven. In addition there is a hypocaust and reproduction Roman artifacts, to be found.
