Gordon Franz Sends Me 2003 Article On Wyatt Excavations

The article’s existence has only been acknowledged here on the web. It is about the Wyatt Archaeological Research excavations at Zedekiah’s Cave in 2003 and also recounts the Israeli side of the story of the Wyatt excavations during Wyatt’s lifetime. Perhaps the most notable account in that article is Dan Bahat’s, where he recounts how he reassured the warden of the Garden Tomb to continue allowing Wyatt to excavate as long as Wyatt would not misrepresent the finds from his excavation area. Needless to say, Wyatt did misrepresent the finds of his excavation. The article also points out Wyatt’s lack of an excavation license, already noted by the Standishes.
