      Supervised by Prof. Oded Lipschits, Tel Aviv University -- The
      Lautenschläger Azekah Archaeological Project has initiated a field
      school designed to provide students with their first taste of
      archaeological fieldwork and to expand their theoretical knowledge.
      The field school will focus its efforts on unearthing the various
      parts of the biblical city of Azekah and on discovering the caves
      used as hideouts during the Bar Kochba revolt against the Roman Empire.

      Field work will include intensive guidance by the field supervisors,
      including detailed explanations and instruction. This field training
      will include discussion of methods of stratigraphic excavation,
      recording and documentation. Furthermore, our staff specialists will
      hold special workshops focusing on subjects such as site survey and
      mapping, pottery typology, landscape archaeology, geology, etc.

      Associated coursework will be divided into three sections:
      Introduction to Archaeology, History and Archaeology of the Judean
      Lowland, and History and Archaeology of the Land of the Bible.
      Students will receive readings materials six weeks before the
      beginning of the excavations (end of May 2012). At the end of each
      course, students will be graded on the basis of their participation
      in class, their engagement with the assigned reading and a final paper.
