Speaker information

Ilaria Bultrighini, Research Associate in Ancient HIstory, UCL, Department of Hebrew and Jewish Studies

This talk focuses on the biblical town of Zoar – known as Zoora in the 6th century CE – which is located by modern Ghor es-Safi in Jordan. Regular and illegal archeological excavations that took place there in the 1980s and 1990s unearthed an unparalleled number of Greek and Aramaic gravestones, dating to the 4th–6th centuries CE.

Following the talk there will be a drinks reception.
