Excavating the ‘Last of the Phoenicians’: Field Work at Tel Kedesh of Upper Galilee

July 10, 2018


Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at 12:00 noon, free!

Sharon Herbert, Ph.D and Charles K. Williams II (distinguished university professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Michigan) present a lecture on the Hellenistic settlement at Kedesh in the Upper Galilee of modern Israel.

Kedesh was 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.

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

The Center for New Mexico Archaeology (7 Old Cochiti Road) is located off of Caja del Rio Road, across from Challenge New Mexico on the way to the Santa Fe Municipal Golf Course. Take 599 to South Meadows Road, continue through the traffic circle west along the Frontage Road to Caja del Rio Road. CNMA is on the left-hand side of the road and is the large building with white sail-like skylights on the roof.
