On Sunday, Itzick will be giving a lecture at the 16th annual World Congress of Jewish Studies, being held in Jerusalem. the lecture, “The Late Bronze and Iron Age Remains at Tel Burna”, will be given in a session focusing on the Judean Shephelah. Here is a link and the abstract!
“The late Bronze and Iron Age Remains at Tel Burna – The excavations at Tel Burna revealed a sequence of Iron Age levels, including portions of domestic structures and the summit’s fortifications. In addition a Late Bronze Age IIB building, where several cultic finds have been found. This lecture will focus on the finds from the excavations, and what they teach us about the site’s history. Further considerations on the importance of the site on a regional level and as a border town will be reflected on, in association with the excavation results”
Good luck Itzick!
