METAL PLATES VIDEO NOW AVAILABLE
With the recent discovery of a large treasure trove of burial objects in Jerusalem (described in a preceding article), attention has been drawn again to the ancient practice of writing on metal. While we await further information about these artifacts, we draw renewed attention to Paul Cheesman's recent production, "So Let It Be Written" (see F.A.R.M.S. Newsletter, June 1984). This film is now available on VHS video for only $25.00. It shows instances of writing on metal plates, particularly on golden plates or objects, from many parts of the ancient world. It is highly suitable for general audiences. A companion volume by Paul Cheesman entitled Ancient Writing on Metal Plates (Bountiful: Horizon Publishers and Distributors, 1985), ISBN 0-88290-303-9, 93 pp., is available through general LDS book stores and dealers.
