Excavating the "Last of the Phoenicians": Field Work at Tel Kedesh of the Upper Galilee, 1997-2012

June 13, 2017


Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at 12:00 noon, free!

This talk by Professor Sharon Herbert outlines excavations and finds from the Hellenistic settlement at Kedesh in the Upper Galilee of modern Israel. A thriving and hitherto unknown administrative center for the Greek, Phoenician, and Jewish populations ruled by the Greeks after Alexander the Great's conquests, this site reveals new aspects of the complex interactions between the mixed populations of the region.

Sharon Herbert is a Charles K. Williams II Distinguished University Professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Michigan, the President of the Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem, and Vice-President of the American Schools of Oriental Research.

The Brown Bag talks will take place at the Center for New Mexico Archaeology at 12:00 noon on Tuesdays in the CNMA library. Seating is limited. Admission is free.

Take 599 to South Meadows Road, continue through the traffic circle west along the Frontage Road to Caja del Rio Road.
