This is post by my collaborator in Israel, Prof. Aren Maeir from Bar-Ilan University, a noted scholar in Biblical Archaeology
The Biblical Archaeology Society has put out a very nice publication, in which they asked 40 leading archaeologists, historians, biblical scholars, epigraphers and scholars from cognate fields, to make their predictions and suggestions in honor of 40 years to the Biblical Archaeology Society.
Very nice collection of some very nice ideas about what the future holds for our profession. I have a short article in which I call for a greater amount of inter-disciplinary studies in the field – in particular relating to the humanistic sides of our research and in particular when dealing with the interface between Bible and archaeology.
See here a link to my article.
