Join ACE for an update from returning Israeli archaeologist David Ilan, who is Director of Excavations at Tel Dan, one of the most important sites in Near Eastern archaeology in general and in biblical archaeology in particular. In addition to discussing the exciting recent excavations in northern Israel, Professor Ilan will provide context for his project with a talk, “Follow the Artifacts (and the Money): The Politics and Economics of Archaeological Excavation in Israel.”

 

David Ilan is Director of the Nelson Glueck School of Biblical Archaeology at the Jerusalem campus of the Hebrew Union College. His publications deal with a wide range of subjects: the Middle Bronze Age of the southern Levant, the archaeology of death, northern Israel in the early Iron Age, community and archaeology and the problem of antiquities plunder and trade. He is currently preparing a series of final publications on the Tel Dan excavations with the staff of the Nelson Glueck School and a book on the religion and iconography of the Chalcolithic Period in the Levant.
