Film Description:Produced by the Southern Baptists Convention, 1967. Filmed in Jordan and featuring Biblical Archaeologist James B. Pritchard (1910-1997) of the University of Pennsylvania.

Pritchard's work in this film took place in Tell es-Sa'idiyeh,(1964--1967) with excavations at on the east bank in the Jordan Valley, Jordan, which revealed itself as a meeting place for disparate cultures during the transition in the late Bronze Age to the use of iron, which he connected to the influence of the Sea Peoples ("New evidence on the role of the Sea Peoples in Canaan at the Beginning of the Iron Age"), in "The Role of the Phoenicians", (1968). His work was cut short by the 1967 Six-Day War.
