BioSketch:

Carroll Kobs has been interested in and dedicated to the field of Archaeology for the past 10 years. Her involvement with the Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project began in the fall of 2005 when asked to join a preliminary expedition just prior to the first season in the winter of 2005/6. In the second season (2007/8), having successfully completed her training at the TeHEP Field School (as part of her M.A. program), she began working as a Square Supervisor. She continues to serve in that capacity, as well as assisting with the ceramics and objects registry. Mrs. Kobs is currently researching and writing her doctoral dissertation (encompassing the archaeological and historical analyses of the Tall el-Hammam Excavation Project) entitled Tall el-Hammam: The First Five Seasons, providing a comprehensive documentation of the Chalcolithic through Roman periods at this important Jordan Valley site.
