There are far better introductory listens
What disappointed you about Biblical Archaeology?
The narrator is pretty bland and sometimes downright bad as he seems to pronounce nearly every thing wrong. Also, the work was more focused on the recent history of archaeologists (or pseudo-archaeologists) rather than the actual history based on evidence
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
If Eric Cline, who I know to be a good lecturer, read it himself.
What didn’t you like about Craig Jessen’s performance?
He just is not experienced in the field. He pronounces many ancient sites, people's names, and techniques wrong. Such as calling Lachish "LATCH-itch" and Heinrich Schliemann as "Schleiman", a name every would be archaeologist learns in his first semester of Greek history.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Biblical Archaeology?
Less details on how archaeology works. I would look for a more general book if that is what I wanted and more on specific finds

Great book, great subject, but the reader is so so
I enjoyed everything except for the reader who doesn't seem excited about the subject!! 🤔
