Alpha Kappa Omega presents Jim and Penny Caldwell’s "Raiders of the Lost Mount" on Monday, April 14, at 7 p.m. in the theatre of the Dale A. Lyons Building on Southwestern Michigan College’s Dowagiac campus.

The Academic Lecture Series event is open to the public at no cost.

The Caldwells, whose Split Rock Research Foundation was founded in 2002 in Mississippi, lived in Saudi Arabia for 12 years while Jim worked in the oil and gas industry.

During that time they traveled through much of the Middle East.

Their extensive desert travels unearthed an amazing trail of ancient Biblical evidence buried beneath the sands or locked behind barbed wire fences.
The Caldwells backpacked their way into restricted areas and behind forbidden
fences which, at times, led to arrest at gunpoint.

Their covert exploratory trips in and around these regions amassed a tremendous volume of photographic and video evidence that the Bible records actual events, not allegories, relating to Moses and the exodus of the children of Israel from Egypt.

Listen as they share their experience and show how physical evidence confirms Biblical accounts.
