The Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology

The Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology offers courses in the archaeology of the region from prehistory through the Late Antique period, as well as in the history of the Land of Israel from ancient times until the modern period. Affiliated with the department, the Institute of Archaeology provides the aegis for all of the archaeological fieldwork conducted by the university. This summer excavations will be conducted at two locations: Tel Burna, an important site during the Bronze and Iron Ages located in the Shephelah region of Israel, and at ‘Einot Amitai, a Roman period stone vessel workshop located near Nazareth in Galilee. Recently, the institute has been responsible for excavations at Tel Hebron (Rumeida) and at Tel Shiloh.
