The Jordan Lead Codices continue to attract my interest. This evening I went looking for an email address for the gentleman, with a view to asking him some questions. It is, after all, entirely possible that he is the victim of a fraud, rather than its perpetrator. The latter, indeed, seems unlikely to me.
I didn’t find an email address, but I did find a biography at the literary agent, Curtis Brown, here.
David Elkington is the author of In the Name of the Gods, the highly acclaimed academic thesis on the resonance and acoustical origins of religion. David is primarily an Egyptologist, specializing in Egypt-Palestinian links that have inevitably drawn him into the field of Biblical studies.
Between 1987 and 1990 he trained under Julia Samson, curator of the Petrie Museum, University of London, specializing in the Amarnan period of Egypt (c. 1500 BC), and also under Prof. Christine el Mahdy at the British School of Egyptology. He has co-hosted academic tours of the major ancient sites of Egypt and has been a member of the Egypt Exploration Society, the Palestine Exploration Fund and well as a fundraising Vice-Chairman of the Oxford China Scholarship Fund Working Group. He has lectured at universities all over the world and written many papers on ancient history and linguistics.
