Lectures at the Archaeological Congress

The Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project Official (and Unofficial) Weblog

As I mentioned previously, today the annual archaeological congress in Israel was held at BIU. There was a full day of lectures – many of which were very interesting. I have gave a paper on feasting in PNG and implications for the archaeology of the Ancient Near East – which I believe was received very well – and needless to say, I had a lot of fun giving it.

Amit gave our joint paper on the excavations in Area D – the lower city of Gath – and this as well went very well (see the pictures below of Amit giving his paper).

During the lunch break, we got together in the Safi lab, Safi team members and various friends, to raise a toast (see pictures below) in honor of Pessach/Passover – happy holidays to all!
