      UNEARTHING THE WILDERNESS:

      WORKSHOP ON THE HISTORY AND ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE NEGEV AND EDOM IN THE IRON AGE

      W.F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research
      Sunday December 12th 2010, 13:00-17:20

      Recent archaeological excavations in southern Israel and southern Jordan have
      provided new evidence on
      the different ethnic groups that passed through and/or lived in these arid areas
      during the Iron Age (ca.

      1200–550 BCE); and on the interconnections with Egypt, Mesopotamia, the
      Mediterranean and Arabia.

      The main issues involved in the study of the Negev and Edom in the Iron Age will
      be discussed by six

      prominent researchers — Uzi Avner, Tali Erickson-Gini, Israel Finkelstein,
      Liora Freud, Juan Manuel

      Tebes and Yifat Thareani. The workshop is organized by Juan Manuel Tebes, Carol
      and Eric Meyers

      Fellow, AIAR; Faculty, Catholic University of Argentina; University of Buenos
      Aires; Fellow, CONICET.

          LAW, LITERATURE AND MURDER
          IN THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST

          THURSDAY 16TH DECEMBER ~ 6.30PM
          FOLLOWED BY A RECEPTION

          A lecture in memory of RAYMOND WESTBROOK given by PROFESSOR PIOTR
          MICHALOWSKI

          Professor Piotr Michalowski's work on a cuneiform document recording a
          murder trail, c.1800BCE was also to have a legal commentary by his old
          friend, colleague and New London Synagogue member Professor Raymond
          Westbrook, the leading authority on ancient Near Eastern law. Prof.
          Westbrook died one year ago and this lecture celebrates his memory with
          an analysis of a text that was dear to his heart and mind, fulfilling an
          old promise. The text is short, but its many twists and turns reveal a
          fascinating insight into an aristocratic Babylonian family.

          British born, Piotr Michalowski grew up in Poland and received his
          doctorate from Yale University where he and Raymond Westbrook were
          students together. He is the George G. Cameron Professor of Ancient Near
          Eastern Civilizations at the University of Michigan specializing in the
          Sumerian and Babylonian literature, languages, history, economics and
          poetics. He is also is the editor of the Journal of Cuneiform Studies
          and President of the International Association of Assyriologists.

          The lecture takes place at the New London Synagogue,
          33 Abbey Road London NW8 OAT

          Admission to the lecture is free but please indicate your attendance to:
