The Desert Role in the Formation of Ancient Israel
Wilkins Terrace restaurant (reception) / Chadwick lecture theatre (lecture) |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Dr. Uzi Avner, Ben Gurion University, Dr. Uzi Avner served as the District Archaeologist of the Southern Negev for the Israel Antiquities Authority from 1977 to 1999. Since then he has taught desert archaeology in the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and in the Ben-Gurion University, Eilat.
In addition to the biblical narrative, scholars suggest several theories as to the formation of ancient Israel, which involved many local ethnic groups. Each group attempted to influence the culture of the forming nation. A close look into the Bible and Iron Age Israel shows that the desert played an important role in the people's culture and how these desert groups influenced one another.
