Workhop/Seminar on Maritime and Coastal Archaeology, June 3, 21

A workshop/hands-on seminar on the interface between maritime and coastal archaeology was held at the University of Haifa on Thursday, June 3, 2021. Senior and junior members of the RIAB Center, along with staff members of the Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project, visited the University of Haifa, to the Institute of Maritime Studies, the Institute of Archaeology, and the Hecht Museum. During the visit, our hosts showed us finds from various underwater and coastal projects (including Dor, Kabri, Akhziv, Ma'agan Michael, and others), discussed methods of excavation and analyses, and the challenges and methods used in preserving finds from water logged environments.

Particular emphasis was placed on discussing the various types of finds from various cultures and regions, and how this affects our understanding of the cultural interactions between cultures in various periods.
