Jill Katz with piece on Jerusalem and Samaria in BAR

Dr. Jill Katz (YU), long-time team member at Safi, and currently Area Supervisor of the Area P excavations at Safi, has published a very interesting article in BAR – presenting an urban anthropological perspective on the roles and status of the cities of Jerusalem and Samaria during the Iron Age.

Way to go Jill!

Here’s a picture of Jill (on the back left) and Malka (one of the YU students on the dig), excavating last year in Area P
