Archaeological excavation and analysis of an Egyptian fortress from the New Kingdom (15th century BCE) in the Canaanite city of Jaffa, Israel. (36 months)

The current proposal is for a three-year multidisciplinary archaeological research project covering field work and study seasons conducted during 2013, 2014, and 2015 in Jaffa, Israel on the south side of Tel Aviv. With Aaron A. Burke (UCLA) as PI it entails a collaboration among a variety of specialists from the US, Israel, and Europe under the umbrella of the Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project, which has operated in Jaffa since 2007. Through archaeological exploration it addresses questions of insurgency and social interaction between Egyptians and Canaanites at the site during the Late Bronze Age, when Egypt maintained an imperial fortress as part of the Egyptian strategy for controlling the region. The effort is aimed at increasing the resolution of sampling from Late Bronze Age contexts in Jaffa, as well as improving our understanding of the chronological context of the various levels from which these finds derive through other techniques.
