Lecture by Amit Dagan and Debi Cassuto at Tel Aviv University

Posted on

Today, at Tel Aviv University, Amit Dagan presented a paper that he prepared with Debi Cassuto at the annual young scholars’ conference of the Institute of Archaeology at Tel Aviv University.  The paper focused on the identification of a small rural site (Horvat Shimon), excavated by the IAA and published by Amit as part of his Master’s thesis, as a textile production site.

As Amit showed in the lecture, the finds from the site indicate in many ways that the site was  a textile production site – quite a rare find in the archaeology of Israel.  The paper was well-presented and as suggested by some of the participants, thought-provoking.

If you want more details about the site and what indicates its use as a textile production site – you’ll have to wait for the article, which I am sure will appear soon, or head to ASOR in November, where the lecture will be presented in English.

Way to go Amit and Debi!!!!
