“Collapse” conference

Today, I participated in the first day of talks at the conference on “Collapse” held at the Hebrew University (mentioned here). The lectures were simply outstanding, covering a wide range of topics from ancient North America, 2nd mill BCE China, LB and Iron Age Canaan, Mycenaean Greece, etc., given by some of the most important scholars in various fields of archaeology and history from throughout the world.

So far, I must say that this is one of the best conferences I have EVER attended. And it continues all week!
