Israel – Tel Bet Yerah Field School


Israel – Tel Bet Yerah Field School

June 20 – July 17, 2015


Tel Bet Yerah (Khirbet Kerak) is a large, 60-acre mound dramatically situated on the Sea of Galilee at the outlet of the River Jordan, in Israel. Bet Yerah was a large, fortified city – one of the first in its region – at about 3,000 BCE, with evidence for diplomatic contacts with the First Dynasty of Egypt. In 2015 we will delve down into the deepest levels of the mound, in order to gain a better understanding of the creation of local cultural traditions at the beginning of the Early Bronze Age (3500 – 3100 BCE). For more information visit the field school website.

Connecticut College will award each student 8 semester credit units (12 quarter units). Tuition includes credit units, and room and board.
