About the Lecture:
This Distinguished University Professor Lecture covers research on a Hellenistic archive discovered recently by a Michigan excavation team at Kedesh, a Graeco-Phoenician site in northern Israel. The discoveries include thousands of seal impressions from delicately carved personal rings. The Kedesh archive is placed in context with the twenty other excavated Hellenistic archives known.
