Albright Fellows’ Reports on the ASOR Blog

Albright Institute Fellows 2012


All twenty one reports from last year’s (2011–2012) W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research fellows are now hosted on the ASOR Blog. Fellows write about the research they undertook while resident at the Albright in Jerusalem. Their reports cover topics from the analysis of biblical literature, to writing up archaeological field work, to museum studies of artifacts. Their periods of interest range from the Neolithic through Islamic times and deal with everything from tools types to literature.
