Research field: nautical archaeology and history

His research deals mainly with nautical archaeology and history. He dedicated a book about the load capacity of the Greek and Roman ships (Phortia. Le tonnage des navires de commerce en Méditerranée du VIIIe siècle av. l'ère chrétienne au VIIe siècle de l'ère chrétienne, Rennes, Presses Universitaires de Rennes, 2016, 656 p.). His study of the ancient ships is based both on written sources, iconographical evidence and shipwrecks. He is conducting land and underwater excavations and surveys in France (Allonnes, Port-Vendres) and in Israel (Caesarea). He is also heading the PANAV project about nautical heritage.

Research field: sedimentary archaeology

Ruth Shahack-Gross is head of the Laboratory for Sedimentary Archaeology at the University of Haifa (Dept. of Maritime Civilizations, Charney School of Marine Sciences). With a dual background in Geology (The Hebrew University in Jerusalem) and Archaeological Anthropology (Washington University in St. Louis), Shahack-Gross conducts a materials-oriented research in the field of Geoarchaeology. Her current main research interest is to understand formation processes in coastal and underwater archaeological sites. Her scientific approach is summarized in this review article. Shahack-Gross directs her own excavations and collaborates in other projects. Special attention in the field is given to stratigraphy and microstratigraphy. In the lab, experimentation, microscopic, spectroscopic, and other techniques are used to provide a fuller understanding of archaeological materials and processes. Research projects carried out by the Sedimentary Archaeology research group use the geoarchaeological-formation processes approach to answer broad archaeological questions such as societal collapse events, settlement systems and subsistence economy, and international trade networks.

Sariel Shalev

Department of Maritime Civilization and Department of Archaeology,

The Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies, The University of Haifa.

Prof. Sariel Shalev is the head of Analytical Laboratory for Archaeological Materials. The lab studies the ancient artifacts and remains which come from excavations in Israel in order to obtain a better understanding of the evolution of technology, industries, crafts, economies, society and culture and to study the archaeological materials contributing to the interface between science and humanities. This is accomplished by addressing archaeological, historical, ethnographical, and art historical questions, and to further explore them with the best available scientific tools such as portable X-ray florescence analyzer (ED-XRF) and radiography machine and other methods. Owing to its portability, ease of operation in computerized modes, this equipment is easily usable in the field, in museums, in study collections, and storerooms, etc. The lab became recently the leading interdisciplinary research center of its kind in the field of archaeological materials and archaeometallurgy.

Research areas: marine and coastal archeology, archeology of the Aegean region

Professor Dr. Dror Angel. He was recently a visiting professor at the University of California, San Diego. His main interests are the connections between the Aegean and the Levant during the Bronze Age, maritime trade in the Bronze and Iron Ages, underwater and coastal archaeological survey, and Canaanite and Phoenician material culture. Projects currently under way include the Tel Kabri excavations (in collaboration with A. Cline of George Washington University), the direction of underwater excavations at the ancient port of Tel Dor (as part of the Tel Dor project directed of A. Gilboa and I. Sharon), the reconstruction of the ancient coastal environment of the Coast of the Carmel (in collaboration with T. Levi of the University of California, San Diego) and the publication of the Tel Akhziv excavations during the Bronze and Iron Ages.
