A very interesting meeting will be held in Heidelberg from Sept. 1 to Sept. 4, 2014. The meeting, entitled “Heidelberg Colloquium on the Subject of Aram and Israel: Cultural Interaction, Political Borders and Construction of Identity during the Early Iron Age (12th–8th centuries bce)” will be held at the University of Heidelberg. A series of very interesting lectures (including one by yours truly) will be presented. I will be talking about issues relating to identifying Aramaean presence in the Iron Age southern Levant, touching upon both the finds from Tell es-Safi/Gath, as well as other sites and finds in the region.
Here is the poster and the schedule of the lectures:
Should be very interesting – I’m definitely looking forward to this!
