Abel Beth Maacah Academic Credit Program

2014 Season

 

Undergraduates receiving academic credit must participate in all four weeks of excavation.  A total of 4 academic credits are available through one of the two following programs, if one meets all of the requirements, as listed below.

 

Registration and payment for academic credit (Programs 1 or 2) must be done through the Rothberg International School of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem who grants the credit.

§  Please ensure that your home institution accepts Hebrew University credit. Although we have never had problems before, you will want to be sure for peace of mind.

§  Details about registration and costs may be found on the Rothberg International School website under “Summer Courses” at https://overseas.huji.ac.il/?CategoryID=777&ArticleID=996

§  Since the excavation does not receive any monetary benefit from the credit fees you pay, to help cover the costs of the educational program, credit students must pay a $280 program fee directly to the Abel Beth Maacah excavation project using the online payment system or pay by cash or check in person when you arrive at the kibbutz. Much of this cost pays for the two required all-day Sunday field trips.

§  Please make sure to note on Page 3 of the dig’s online registration form that you will participate as an academic credit student.

§  The director of the Academic Credit Program is Prof. Lauren Monroe of Cornell University. Please contact her with questions and commonts.

 

Program 1: Introduction to Field Archaeology

 

This program is geared to students who wish to experience an archaeological excavation and acquire basic knowledge on topics related to biblical archaeology and to the site of Abel Beth Maacah in particular.

 

1. Completion of assigned readings on topics relevant to excavation of the site. Readings will be posted on the Abel Beth Maacah website and must be completed before the start of the excavation season.

 

2. Participation for 20 consecutive days in the field under the supervision of experienced archaeologists.

 

3. Participation in the daily afternoon activities of pottery washing, marking the finds, carrying out computer data entry, finds registration, etc.

 

4. Participation in all afternoon pottery reading sessions during the week.  During this time students will receive instruction on the value of pottery in archaeological research and will study basics of pottery typology and dating, as well as the archaeological processing of ceramic data.

 

5. Attendance and participation in all evening lectures on various topics related to the history, culture, and material evidence at Abel Beth Maacah, issues related to Biblical Archaeology (including correlating archaeological and textual evidence, the chronological debate over the 10th and 9th centuries BCE, geopolitical relations between Arameans, Israelites and Phoenicians, inter alia), as well as topics of general archaeological interest (gender archaeology, zooarchaeology, the use of computers in archaeology, anthropological aspects of archaeological ceramics, etc.).

 

6. Participation in two Sunday guided field trips to important sites in northern Israel including Banias, Dan, Hazor, Katzrin, Umm el-Kanatir, Chorazin, Capernaum, Nof Ginnosar (Ancient Boat), Tiberias and Megiddo, among others.

Program 2: Advanced Archaeological Methods

 

This program is geared to students who have had at least three weeks of experience on an archaeological excavation (in Israel or elsewhere) and want to acquire more advanced skills
in field methodology.

 

In addition to fulfilling requirements 1–6 in Program 1 above, this program includes the following:

 

1. In-depth and hands-on study of field excavation methodology, recording and registration in the field. Students will partake in the daily registration, surveying, drawing sections and plans, taking heights, computer data entry, and other aspects of archaeological field documentation. An opportunity will be given to the students to acquire supervisory skills in the field by running their own mini-project during the excavation.

 

2. Participation in occasional afternoon “methods workshops” led by professional experts on array of topics including: publication of archaeological data, stratigraphic analysis, surveying techniques, development of pottery typologies; microarchaeology, etc.

 

3. Submission of a written final report which will include: background on the excavation project; achievements in the particular excavation area; a short report on the excavation in the particular square in which the student worked, as well as detailed records from one full week of excavation, including a field diary, top plan drawings and section drawings. 

 

Materials: All students in Program 2 must bring a Marshalltown (or other comparable) trowel[1] ; a metric ruler with scales of 1:20 and 1:50; a four-color ball-point pen; a notebook; a mechanical pencil, and a good eraser. 

 

 

**Graduate credit is available upon special request and in addition to the above requirements, will entail submitting a research paper.
