Biography

I am archaeologist of the Levant who has conducted field work for the past 35 years in Israel, Turkey and Egypt. My research interests include the Bronze and Iron Ages in the eastern Mediterranean, ancient ceramic studies, Roman and Byzantine Palestine, new technologies and 3D documentation in archaeology, and heritage studies/public archaeology. I have participated or directed archaeological projects at numerous sites in Israel including Jericho, Deir el-Balah, Tel Miqne-Ekron, Tel Beth Shean, Megiddo, Qasrin, and Qasyon, as well as a six-year landscape archaeological survey in Cilicia, Turkey. I am currently the co-director of the Tel Akko “Total Archaeology” project, located at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Akko. This project also serves as an archaeological field school for Penn State students. I am the co-founder and co-editor of the Journal of Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology and Heritage Studies, a peer-reviewed journal published by the Pennsylvania State University Press.
