On October 26th 2017, The Sonia and Marco Nadler Institute of Archaeology held its 7th Annual Conference for 'New Discoveries and Innovations in Excavations'. Scholars, researchers, students, and archaeology enthusiasts from around Israel, were invited to be the first to hear about new discoveries, ideas, and endeavours, fresh from the expeditions of 2017.

In addition to the ongoing projects of the institute, the excavation directors of sites such as Timna, Ashdod- Yam, and Tel Beth-Shemesh, presented the latest on their most recent discoveries. The 2017 conference included an introduction to five new archaeological projects that began during the past academic year, e.g., Masada, Kiriath-Jearim, Tel Shimron, Jaljulia, and the Givati Parking Lot. Ultimately, the conference was a great opportunity for members of the wider research and public community to connect and share in the current status of history and archaeology, and become excited for what lies ahead

 

 

 

On November 3, 2016, The Sonia and Marco Nadler Institute of Archaeology held its 6th Annual Conference for 'New Discoveries and Innovations
in Excavations'. Scholars, researchers, students, and archaeology enthusiasts from around Israel, were invited to be the first to hear about new discoveries, ideas, and endeavours, fresh from the expeditions of 2016. The two sessions were devoted to sites that range from the Timna Valley
in the south, through Jerusalem to Tel Megiddo in the north. The sites discussed spanned a wide sample of history, with lectures from as early as the lower Palaeolithic at Qesem Cave, to late Bronze and Iron Age Tel Beth-Shemesh and Tel Azekah, to the Hellenistic period in Ashdod-Yam.


A particularly noteworthy moment was Dr. Guy Stiebel’s announcement of his plans to return to Masada in 2017 (February 5 – March 3), revealing
that the mound has a great deal of archaeological insight that is yet to be revealed.
