In his new Book Life in Year One Scott Korb examines what life was like when Jesus was born: What did people eat, how did they live, how did they dress, and what was flirting like? Using archaeological data, ancient texts, and modern historical research, he paints a clear picture Jewish life under Roman rule. National Public Radio has interviewed Korb about his new book.
You can listen to the interview on the NPR website, where you will also find a transcript.
Scott Korb is a professor at New York University's Gallatin School and The New School. You can order his new Book Life in Year One right here on Ancient History Encyclopedia (via Amazon).
