Seminar on “The Land of Palistin” at Ben-Gurion University – 29 March, 2012

On Thursday, March 29th, 2012, the Irene Levi-Sala Annual Research Seminar will be held at Ben-Gurion University in Beersheba, and this year, Prof. Tim Harrison of the University of Toronto will present a talk on his excavations at Tell Tayinet in the Amuq plain in southern Turkey. He will discuss the finds and in particular the remains relating to the northern Sea Peoples from there – and the so-called “Kingdom of Palistin”.
After his talk there will be a discussion, with remarks by I. Singer, G. Lehmann, A. Gilboa, A. Yasur-Landau and yours truly.
The finds from this excavation have opened up new vistas on understanding the Sea Peoples phenomenon and it is highly recommended to come to this very interesting seminar (which will be held in English).
Here is the program for the day: Sala Seminar 2012 program -MAIL

Hope to see you there!!!

  1. I believe what you typed made a great deal of sense. But, think on this, suppose you added a little content? I am not saying your information is not solid., but suppose you added something to possibly get folk’s attention? I mean Seminar on “The Land of Palistin” at Ben-Gurion University – 29 March, 2012 | The Tell es-Safi/Gath Excavations Official (and Unofficial) Weblog is kinda plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.

      Thanks for the comments. What you suggest is what is usually is done, but most often AFTER the event, since I will describe what happened. In any case, thanks for the points.
