For centuries scholars have tried to work out where Emmaus was. Where, in other words, the risen Christ walked, ate and revealed himself. It is a crucial location in the map of Christian belief, and one of the great missing links of Christian archaeology, which has foxed excavators and biblical detectives for more than a millennium and a half. Over the centuries three different sites were suggested, but the trail went cold long ago, or so it seemed. Now Thiede has produced his most dramatic find to date. His work remains highly confidential and will cause a storm in the archaeological world when it is disclosed. The lost site of Emmaus is rising once again from the soil. Readers will be astonished by this extraordinary book
