The safi project had great representation at the Annual Archaeological Conference at TAU today. As mentioned previously, 4 papers relating to the project were presented: Sue et al. on EB paleobotany; Amit et al. on the excavations in Area E; Shira et al. on EB votive vessels; and Aren on a reassessment of the so-called Canaanite enclave in the Iron I Shephelah.
All the papers were well-received – even if not all agreed with mine… :-)
In general, the day was very successful, and I managed to hear quite a few really interesting papers on a broad range of issues.
Kol Hakavod to the organizers!
