Tel Dor and Cross-Mediterranean Interactions 1400-400 BC: A Non-Braudelian Story

Gilboa lecture

Sponsored by the World Archaeology Section.

Tel Dor, on Israel’s Carmel Coast, was one of the main anchorages of the Southern Levant during the Bronze and Iron Ages, and an important interface between north-south and east-west trade routes in the region. This lecture will explore the fluctuations between the site’s commercial spheres of interaction, highlighting the decisive effects of histoire événementielle, and the emergence of so-called ‘Phoenicianism’.

The project website has more details about the site and excavations.

There will be wine and nibbles afterwards. The lecture is free and no ticket is required. All welcome!
