The Annual Conference “New Studies in the Archaeology of Jerusalem and its Region” will be held on Wednesday-Thursday, 23-24 of October, 2019.

The organizers have asked to spread the word about this interesting conference. Looks like it will be very interesting!

Here’s the schedule in English and Hebrew:

Article on Area D metallurgy submitted!

After many months of work, a very nice paper on the Area D metallurgical activity area was submitted today to a well-known journal. The paper, spearheaded by Vanessa Workman, along with Adi Eliyahu Behar, Elisabeta Boaretto, Johanna Regev, Amit Dagan and yours truly, will hopefully appear in the not to distant future.

Updates on this when relevant!

“Tzafit Assemblage” and a Tell es-Safi/Gath assemblage!

Dr. Debi Cassuto was kind enough to give me a bottle of “Tzafit Assemblage” 2014 (by Barkan Vineyards), which is produced from grapes grown in the vicinity of Tell es-Safi/Gath.

So, I thought it would be nice to put it next to a real assemblage from Tell es-Safi/Gath!
