Treasures From Site of John the Baptist’s Martyrdom Brought to New Light Through Mississippi State’s Cobb Institute of Archaeology

Mississippi State University

E. Jerry Vardaman was the first to lead an excavation of the ancient site of Machaerus—the place in modern-day Jordan near the Dead Sea where John the Baptist was imprisoned and beheaded by Herod Antipas. The excavation was in 1968 when Vardaman was affiliated with Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, before joining Mississippi State in 1972 as a professor of religion and the Cobb Institute’s first director. Some of the palace’s treasures uncovered by the archaeologist only now are being rediscovered with the help of passionate scholars and the late professor’s family.
