M.A. thesis topic: Early Bronze Age Village Life in the Jezreel Valley.
Advisor: Dr. Sharon Zuckerman
The Jezreel Valley during the Early Bronze Age I period is characterized by a multitude of small egalitarian and autarkic
rural settlements which share a minimal, yet influential, commercial and cultural exchange. The excavated site of Tel Qashish
will be the focal point of the study. An analysis of the ceramic and architectural assemblages of the site will provide
a clearer picture of village life during this period. A further comparison to neighboring sites will facilitate engagement with
research questions relating to daily life and development trajectories in the various settlements of the region.
