When: Thu., Nov. 6, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Presented by Dr. Andrea M. Berlin. In 2010 we concluded six excavations at Tel Kedesh, the largest mound in Israel's Upper Galilee. Our work has brought to light an administrative building, first constructed in the later sixth century BCE and used for the next 350 years.Both Phoenicians and Jews had starring roles in the life of the administrative building at Kedesh, and this lecture brings their character and interactions to life.
