Prof. Dror Angel is a researcher at the Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies, and a senior lecturer in the Department of Maritime Civilizations at the Charney School of Marine Science. He is a marine ecologist with interests in pelagic and benthic invertebrates, including gelatinous zooplankton (jellyfish), benthic macrofauna and protozoa; interactions between man and the marine environment (e.g. impacts of marine pollution and climate change on marine communities, marine aquaculture, etc.) and in finding practical and sustainable solutions to problems in the marine environment (e.g. eutrophication).

Gil Gambash  is the co-founder and director of the Haifa Centre for Mediterranean History, which was established in 2016. Trained originally as a Roman historian in Princeton’s classics department, his historiographic methodologies combine philological and archaeological approaches, and beyond textual and material sources he specializes in numismatics, epigraphy, and papyrology. His research interests center on ancient Mediterranean societies, synthesizing aspects of imperialism, economy, culture, and environment. His current project surveys channels through which the ancient southern Levant was connected to dominant Mediterranean networks, and functioned as a significant Mediterranean player, choosing the mode and volume of its exposure to the ‘Corrupting Sea’, and often initiating and dictating processes of regional significance.

Nimrod MaromI am an archaeozoologist studying the interactions between animals, humans, and the environment in the Holocene and Late Pleistocene through archeofaunal remains. An important part of my work is on materials from large archaeological sites on the Mediterranean coast of Israel, such as Tel Achziv, Tel Kabri, and Tel Keisan. I also direct the DEADSEA_ECO Project, which studies anthropogenic effects on Holocene desert foodwebs.

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.

Department of Maritime Civilization and Department of Archaeology, The University of Haifa.

Research interests: Throughout my academic career, my major goal has been to continue to contribute and assist in establishing as much as I can to the interdisciplinary study of the archaeology of metals and metallurgy in ancient Israel and the Levant. The major milestones, which I have tried to contribute and further develop, have been and are:

  • Establishment archaeometallurgy research as a “legitimate” part of present and future mainstream archaeology in Israel.
  • Establishing an active archaeomaterials research laboratory, first in the Center for Archaeological Sciences in the Weizmann Institute of Science and, later, in the School of Marine Sciences in the University of Haifa, for the study and teaching of the analysis of chemical composition and metallography of ancient metals and metallurgical remains from sites and excavations mainly in Israel.
  • The conducting of research projects abroad. These including the study of pottery composition as an indicator of long distance cultural connections and ethnic movements in Central Asia (in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Pakistan region), and the metal composition and mode of production of bells in the Pagodas of Myanmar with the help of the Myanmar Ministry of Culture.
  • In recent years, as part of a future program, I have been working on broadening my research field by analyzing archaeological sediments on-site during excavation, analyzing differences in pottery composition, and studying flint tools and obsidian.
  • Finally, in order to better understand the possible production processes in different materials in archaeology and as part of our obligation to society, we are currently establishing in the lab, a center for studying and documenting traditional pre-industrial crafts in the Arab and Jewish traditional societies in Israel. These include sending students to the community to teach and tutor the fieldwork of high school children. One of the current projects in progress is being conducted in the Druze village of Daliyat el-Carmel with the direct help and participation of the school staff and the village society.

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. In the last few years, analytical equipment has seen major advances in their precision and in the rapidity of their analysis, such that quality results are available in real time. 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 is aiming at using this innovative equipment for the study of ancient artifacts and remains in order to obtain a better understanding of the evolution of technology, crafts, economy, society and culture.
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

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.
