AR641 LEVANTINE CERAMIC TYPOLOGY
March 21-23, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
This course examines the chronological sequencing of ancient Levantine (Israel, Lebanon, Syria and the Transjordan) pottery types founded on both form-based and function-based methodologies that analyzes the general morphology, clay-body (fabric), and surface treatment of period and regional ceramics, yielding a reasonably reliable system of dating pottery-bearing archaeological strata. Hands-on inspection of whole vessels and sherds (rims, handles, bases and body sherds) provides support of textbook information.
Steven Collins, PhD, TSU Husted Hall – 7600 Jefferson St. NE, Suite 4

AR562 ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE NEW TESTAMENT PERIOD
April 11-13, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
This course examines the material culture of the New Testament era as revealed through the archaeological record of the Early Roman Period Levant, Asia Minor, and other important Roman sites mentioned in Scripture. Socio-cultural phenomena, as well as art, architecture and political structures are introduced. Emphasis is placed on archaeological data illuminating the text of the New Testament.
Jeannine Bulot, PhD(c), TSU Husted Hall – 7600 Jefferson St. NE, Suite 4

AR621 ARCHAEOLOGY & THE BIBLE: HISTORICAL & CULTURAL SYNCHRONISMS
May 9-11, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Integrating biblical history into the histories of ancient Near Eastern kingdoms has often been generic and minimalistic, frequently emphasizing general cultural phenomena without substantive cause/effect correlations. This course identifies and details cause/effect synchronisms between biblical and ancient Near Eastern histories—Egypt, Hatti, Mittani, Assyria, Babylonia, and the Levant—as well as elements of cultural specificity embedded in the biblical narratives, all of which demonstrate the historical authenticity and veracity of the Old Testament, with particular focus on the Torah, Joshua, and Judges.
