Speaker information

Kay Prag, Honorary Lecturer, University of Manchester, Kay Prag is a former Kenyon student and Senior Scholar of the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, who participated in Kathleen Kenyon's Jerusalem excavations in the 1960s. She was for some years editor of the journal Levant, now published by the Council for British Research in the Levant. She currently works on the final publication of her excavations at Tell Iktanu in Jordan and final reports on the Kenyon excavations, mainly concerning the Roman and later periods in Jerusalem.

Recent debates surrounding Old Testament Jerusalem have included the possible location of the Davidic palace and the existence of the city walls built by Nehemiah. Dr Kay Prag (University of Manchester) will argue that the archive from Kathleen Kenyon’s excavations in the 1960s still has contributions to offer on these and other questions.
