Here’s the first announcement on an upcoming scholars’ workshop – The 2015 Ackerman Family Annual Workshop in Biblical Archaeology – hopefully, the first of many such annual workshops.
This year the topic of the workshop will be “And the Canaanite was then in the land” (Gen. 12: 6): Canaanites in Southern Canaan during the Late Bronze Age – New Finds and Perspectives”.
The workshop will be held at Bar-Ilan University (exact venue to be announced), hosted by the Ackerman Family Bar-Ilan University Expedition to Gath, on the 15th and 16th of April, 2015.
On the first day of the workshop, invited lecturers (from Israel and abroad) will present papers (in English) on various sites and issues relating to Southern Canaan in the Late Bronze Age. This day will be open to the general public.
On the 2nd day, the invited participants will take a tour of selected sites in southern Israel with LB remains.
Further details will be posted in the future.
Should be VERY interesting!
P.S. The proceedings of this conference are planned to be published in the future.
