Fredrik Hiebert, Archaeology Fellow for the National Geographic Society, delivers “The Quest for Noah’s Flood” Lecture at Penn Museum

If you missed the lecture “The Quest for Noah’s Flood” by Fredrik Hiebert, you can read the reactions here.

Hiebert’s lecture covered his expeditions of the Black Sea, and submerged landscape which mirror inland settlements, rumored to be associated with the Biblical Flood. The expedition is currently working on developing SONAR technology to fully access the structures.

“We are hoping to resolve the mystery of this ancient flooded landscape, which can tell us more of the story of the great flooding that occurred there and its tie to the Biblical story,” Hiebert said.

The lecture was followed by a question-and-answer session, in which Hiebert reaffirmed that his expedition was not looking for Noah’s ark, but rather Noah’s “house,” and answered questions about the technological, political and future aspects of his exploration.
