1st Annual Ackerman Family Workshop on Biblical Archaeology – Today at BIU!

Today and tomorrow, the First Annual Ackerman Family Workshop in Biblical Archaeology, will be held at BIU. The workshop, which is entitled: “And the Canaanite was then in the land (Gen. 12: 6): Canaanites in Southern Canaan during the Late Bronze and Early Iron Ages”, will deal with recent finds and research on the Late Bronze Age of Southern Canaan.

There will be a very interesting day today (April 15) of lectures by scholars from Israel and abroad, mostly on the results of recent excavations in the Canaan, for the most part in the Shephelah region.

Tomorrow, Thursday, the invited participants will go on a field trip to various sites that were discussed.

Here is the program and abstracts of the workshop: Ackerman LB workshop program book_April 12 2015 final version
