Ph.D. 2014, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem:
“Personal Names in the Land of Israel during the Iron Age II: Archaeological and Biblical Sources”

Research Interests:

  • Expanding the ethnic, historical and theological insights that come from the geographical mapping of archeological findings such as names.
  • Enriching our understanding of the relationship between Archaeology and the biblical text through the comparison of archaeological and biblical onomastica.
  • New approaches to statistical authenticity testing of unprovenanced groups of artifacts.

Projects:

  • Creating and maintaining a database of all personal names found in archaeological excavations in the Land of Israel and Transjordan during the Iron Age II. Each Entry in the database includes a name and its artifact type, date by century, site, site’s political affiliation, type of name, theophoric element, and more.
  • Creating a database of all personal names mentioned in the Bible in the context of the Land of Israel and Transjordan during the First Temple period. Each entry in the database includes an individual mentioned in the bible with all the forms of his/her name(s), biblical source for the name(s), date by century, political affiliation, type of name, theophoric element, and more.
