The joint project “Agricultural Resources in the Bronze & Iron Age Southern Levant“ with Co-PIs Britt Starkovich and Jens Kamlah runs in the framework of the Collaborative Research Center 1070 at the University of Tübingen.
The research aims for uniting the symbolic representation of agriculture in texts of the Old Testament with the material record for agricultural developments based on faunal, botanical and archaeological remains. The overall goal is a better understanding of past human perception of resources and their role in cultural identity.
