There has been a question as to the paleoecological reconstruction in the Southern Levant during the Bronze Age throughout the Byzantine Period. We have been studying the environmental changes using micromammal as a proxy.
Current Research and Collaborations
For this project we have been studying:
- Tel es-Safi in collaboration with Haskel Greenfield, University of Manitoba.
- Huqoq in collaboration with Jodi Magness, UNC Chapel Hill.
- Bethsaida in collaboration with Rami Arav, University of Nebraska, Omaha. The University of Tulsa is a member of the Bethsaida Archaeology consortium.
- Brown, A.B., and Belmaker, M., (2015). Evidence for climate change during the 3rd-5th century CE: The micromammal evidence from Tel Huqoq, Israel. Paper submitted to the 80th Annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. San Francisco, CA.
