The course will be devoted to one the key sites in the archaeology of Israel and most notably of the Classical period – Masada. It will provide a deep insight into the history and archaeology of the site. We will critically review the history of research and gain an intimate knowledge of its structures, its rich material culture and most of all its varied populations.
The course will serve as an introduction to the site in face of the excavation that is scheduled to take place during the semester break.
