MOOC - Biblical Archaeology: The Archaeology of Ancient Israel and Judah

Bar-Ilan University's Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology offers a new MOOC, led by Prof. Aren Maeir, senior lecturer and director of the Tel es Safi archaeological dig. The MOOC, titled Biblical Archaeology: The Archaeology of Ancient Israel and Judah, will use cutting-edge, inter-disciplinary archaeological research to explore the fascinating field of archaeology, the history and the nations of the era: Israel, Judah, Philistine, Mesopotamia, Phoenicia, and others. Special focus will be given to complex relationship between archaeology, history and the bible, and how modern research interfaces between these different, and at times conflicting, sources. In particular, how can archaeology be used to understand the biblical text – and vice a versa. The course will combine short video lectures with extensive illustrative materials, on-site discussions at relevant archaeological locations, display 3D images and discuss relevant archaeological finds.
