Watch: The Latest Archaeological Excavations in Jerusalem – Digging in a Glass House

View a recording of the event below.

Join Tel Aviv University Professor Yuval Gadot (lead archaeologist at the “City of David” and head of the Department of Archaeology and Ancient Near Eastern Cultures) and UC San Diego Professor Tom Levy (Norma Kershaw Chair in the Archaeology of Ancient Israel and Neighboring Lands) for an in depth discussion of the excavation’s latest discoveries in this contested site.


Jerusalem is maybe the most excavated place on earth and still basic questions regarding its history are fiercely debated between scholars. Yuval will present new findings from the on-going excavations at Jerusalem and the “City of David” and explain how they contribute to our understanding of the city during the 2nd and 1st millenniums BCE and how that translates to today.
