IF YOU SHOULD VISIT THE SITE of Andrews University's archeological excavations at Tell Hesban in Jordan, you would be in distinguished company. Among the many visitors we had during the 1974 season were several members of Jordan's royal family, including King Hussein's cousin, Prince Raad, who actually worked with us on two occasions. Other visitors included Jordan's former prime minister and elder statesman, Suleiman Nabulsi; the current Minister of Tourism and Antiquities, Ghalab Barakat; and such members of the diplomatic corps as U.S. Ambassador Thomas Pickering. Among the many archeologists who paid a visit was Harvard Pro- fessor George Ernest Wright, president of the American Schools of Oriental Research, an organization that has probably done more than any other to advance the cause of Biblical archeology.
