In three lectures Dr. Michael Hornum, Archaeologist and Smithsonian Scholar, will cover the archaeological evidence for the nature of the Canaanite city state system in the period 1500-1200 BCE, the collapse of that system about 1200 BCE, and the emergence of the Israelite national state from 1200-1000 BCE. This course is not related to previous 2013 and 2014 courses, but is confined to a period from 1500-1000 BCE, and deals with the broad topics of the transformation from City States to the National State and the emergence of Ancient Israel. Former students as well as new students will all find the lectures filled with new and fascinating information.
