Archaeological Excavations and Discoveries: Illuminating the Biblical World

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: This section will have two sessions. The first session, "Archaeology and the Media," will consist of invited papers and an open call for papers that examine and evaluate relationships between the media and archaeology. We invite papers that explore the challenges of interacting with various media (documentary film, TV, newspaper, etc.), and positive and negative examples from past interactions. The second session, "Current Excavations," solicits papers from field and excavation directors that report on their recent field seasons.
