UNC Charlotte Mt. Zion Excavation

A group of 22 UNC Charlotte students, some of them Levine scholars, participated in a restricted site excavation in Jerusalem this summer. The site is only a few hundred yards away from the room where the Last Supper is alleged to have taken place. The group has just returned to the United States and they've got big news. The archaeologists announce their discoveries and discuss what’s next, when Charlotte Talks.

Dr. James Tabor
– Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at UNC Charlotte
Kevin Caldwell – Rising Junior at UNC Charlotte, Levine scholar and religious studies student, participant in excavation
Caroline Brewer – Rising Senior at UNC Charlotte, Levine scholar and nursing student, participant in excavation
