New Evidence: Bible’s Tower of Babel was Real

An ancient tablet provides the first ever image of the tower of Babel and offers a “very strong piece of evidence” that it was a real building. That’s according to Dr. Andrew George, professor of Babylonian at SOAS University of London. His work is featured in a new episode of “Secrets” on the Smithsonian Channel.

The 6th century B.C. tablet was discovered in Babylon more than 100 years ago. Because it was privately owned, linguists have not been able to study it until now.

George was able to interpret the text and found that its account of the tower’s construction is identical to the biblical story.
