A new article, spearheaded by Adi Eliyahu-Behar, with a large team of Safi collaborators, has just appeared online, in the journal Levant.
In this inter-disciplinary study, a new type of Early Bronze Age cooking installation is identified (a sunken, pebbled hearth-like installation), both at Safi and other EB sites. These installations are studied from a broad range of analytic perspectives.
