EDMOND, Okla., May 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Armstrong International

Cultural Foundation announces the world premiere of "Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered" June 10 through August 19 at Armstrong Auditorium.

"Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered" is an archaeological exhibition that will enable visitors to discover the history of ancient Judah's most famous king-prophet pairing-a story which illuminates how Jerusalem escaped annihilation at the hands of King Sennacherib's Assyrian army at the end of the 8th century B.C. Items on display will include nearly three dozen artifacts from the time of King Hezekiah, including the recently discovered royal seal impressions of King Hezekiah and Isaiah from the Ophel excavations, royal Judean clay vessels, and weapons used during the siege of Lachish. The exhibit will also feature key Assyrian history and will include such artifacts as the famous Annals of Sennacherib Prism (aka Taylor/Jerusalem/Oriental Prism), various other Assyrian inscriptions, and replicas of the famous Assyrian wall reliefs.
