Professor Ayelet Gilboa (Haifa University and the Tel Dor project) will give a lecture in room 612, Institute of Archaeology at 6pm today:
Tel Dor and Cross-Mediterranean Interactions 1400-400 BC: A Non-Braudelian Story
Sponsored by the World Archaeology Section.
Tel Dor, on Israel’s Carmel Coast, was one of the main anchorages of the Southern Levant during the Bronze and Iron Ages, and an important interface between north-south and east-west trade routes in the region. This lecture will explore the fluctuations between the site’s commercial spheres of interaction, highlighting the decisive effects of histoire événementielle, and the emergence of so-called ‘Phoenicianism’.
There will be wine and nibbles afterwards. The lecture is free and no ticket is required. All welcome!
