Mernptah Stele lecture

The Biblical Archaeology Society of New York (I'm President) will be sponsoring a lecture on the Merneptah Victory stele. Dating to the late 13th century BCE it is the earliest known reference to the existence of Israel.

Non-members of BASNY will have to buy a ticket at the box office. (I think it's $15.)
