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
