it has been a long time since the last post, and some exciting things have been happening with the project, which will be arriving in various posts over the next week or two.
Here is the first of the bunch, but before I start, congratulations to Michael Press, who was awarded ASOR’s inaugural Aviram Prize sponsored by the Dorot Foundation. The prize is in recognition for his paper, “(Pytho)Gaia in Myth and Legend: The Goddess of the Ekron Inscription Revisited.”
Congratulations Michael – way to go!
As far as Burna Business goes, many of us are starting to get excited about ASOR lectures. Although they are a couple of months away, many of us will be there, and a few lectures will deal with material we uncovered at Burna over the past two summers. in the process we are working in getting material together to present. Just a small sneak preview, here is a plan showing the fortifications of the Iron Age II, courtesy of J Rosenberg – our surveyor. Thanks J.
Remember, more to come.
