Cotsen Archaeology Field Program in Israel this Summer 2009
Please join us for an informational program about the Cotsen Archaeology Field Program in Israel.
Thursday, April 16, 2009
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Participate in the third season of the Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project (JCHP), archaeological excavations in old Jaffa on the south side of Tel Aviv. The excavations reflect a renewed focus on the exploration of the preclassical remains of Jaffa. These excavations are part of a broader effort to clarify the findings of earlier excavations, notably those undertaken by Jacob and Haya Kaplan between 1955 and 1981. The JCHP will introduce you to archaeological methods and practices commonly employed in Near Eastern archaeology through a full array of hands-on, day-to-day activities. You can become involved in an ongoing archaeological research project.
The Cotsen Institute is sponsoring an information session so that students can learn more about the program from the director Dr. Aaron Burke. Pizza lunch will be served.
Cost: Free of charge
