The Archaeology of Jerusalem in the Bronze and Iron Ages
1671-4081-01
Dr. Yuval Gadot

The city of Jerusalem has a long and complex history that began more than 5000 years ago. Archaeological finds coupled with written sources serve as testimonies for periods during which Jerusalem was a small kingdom or served as the capital of a territorial kingdom. The same sources also leave gaps in our knowledge of the city history and status. The aim of the course is to discuss the history of Jerusalem from an archaeological perspective. During the course we will learn about the city’s natural setting and how they shaped the city’s character. We will get to know Jerusalem’s many explorers and discuss the nature of the city during the Bronze and Iron Ages (the 3rd-1st millenniums BCE)
