David to Nehemiah: new fragments from Kenyon’s Jerusalem
Publication date: Nov 7, 2013 7:13:58 PM
Start: Nov 11, 2013 6:00:00 PM
Organised jointly by the Anglo Israel Archaeological Society and the Institute of Jewish Studies, UCL
Kay Prag, Manchester Museum
Monday November 11th
Such is the density of the archaeological investigation of Old Testament Jerusalem that almost every stone turned leads to controversy. The subjects of recent debates have included the possible location of the Davidic palace and the existence of the city walls built by Nehemiah. The archive from Kathleen Kenyon’s work in the 1960s (the first scientific excavations in Jerusalem, under the auspices of the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem) still has contributions to offer on these and other questions.
Kay Prag is a former Kenyon student and Senior Scholar of the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, who participated in Kathleen Kenyon’s Jerusalem excavations in the 1960s. She was for some years editor of the journal Levant, now published by the Council for British Research in the Levant. She currently works on the final publication of her excavations at Tell Iktanu in Jordan and final reports on the Kenyon excavations, mainly concerning the Roman and later periods in Jerusalem.
