Sodom – A Selection of Images

With a Rebuttal of its Presumed Location in Jordan


The five cities of the plain, still visible in Josephus' day (Wars 4.8.4), were rediscovered in 1989 by the American explorer Ron Wyatt. While the finds have been systematically discredited, Dr. Steven Collins' alleged discovery of Sodom in Jordan has been greatly lauded; but since Canaanite cities are in Canaan, we can dismiss Collins' claim. The images, taken in April 2017, provide an overview of the main urban features of Sodom.
