IsraelCast Episode 37
Episode 37 - This week on IsraelCast, we are joined on the line by Erez Ben-Yosef, Associate Professor in the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures at Tel Aviv University, a Fulbright scholar, and the Head of the Timna Valley Archaeological Expedition. In this fascinating conversation, Ben-Yosef shares his experience working at the Timna mines, where archaeologists have found the remains of a pregnant woman, probably of Egyptian origin, as well as remains from textiles, food and organic matter.
Ben-Yosef has authored multiple research papers on archaeometallurgy, archaeomagnetism, and Iron Age archaeology of the Southern Levant, and edited the recently published volume Mining for Ancient Copper: Essays in Memory of Beno Rothenberg (The Institute of Archaeology of Tel Aviv University and Eisenbrauns, 2018).
