Eran Arie is the curator of Iron Age and Persian Period in The Israel Museum, Jerusalem, and he teaches at The Martin (Szusz) Department of the Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology at Bar-Ilan University. He investigated social processes in the Jezreel Valley from the end of the Late Bronze Age to the formation of the monarchy in his Ph.D.. As part of his two year post-doctoral studies at the University of Haifa, Eran had the opportunity to examine a forgotten pottery assemblage from the Tel Achziv excavations. His current research deals with the archaeological and historical background of the Phoenician settlement in the northern littoral of Israel, and with the relations between the Phoenicians and the kingdom of Israel during the 9th-8th centuries.

Trained as a microarchaeologist, I have completed my PhD at Bar-Ilan University in close association with the Kimmel Center for Archaeological Science at the Weizmann Institute of Science. My doctoral research focused on the differences of cooking technologies and fuel choices between Bronze and Iron Age cultures in the Levant. My research generally explores human-environment interaction, and especially how environmental conditions dictate human techno-cultural behavior and how this behavior impacts the environment. I am particularly interested in cooking and resource utilization for fuel and food.

Since 2014 I have pursued post-doctoral research in the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig and in the Karls-Eberhard Universität, Tübingen, working on several projects related to food resource utilization. My main project was to develop a new method for identifying burnt phytoliths using FTIR spectroscopy. Currently I am taking part in the HARVEST project at Leiden University working on starch preservation. From November 2018 I will research the use of animal dung for construction at the beginning of the Neolithic Period and animal domestication as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow at Pompeu Fabra University in Spain. As a research associate at the Leon Recanati Institute for Maritime Studies I will explore the utilization of marine and coastal vegetal resources for food and fuel in antiquity.

I am a marine macro ecologist seeking to improve the flow of information from the sea to the screen. My research tackles some of the most challenging fields in human-ocean interactions: Fisheries and Invasive Species (PhD) are at the core of my research. I also have ongoing research interests in Jellyfish (hobby/obsession), Marine Ecosystem Services (Post Doc), development of technologies for submarine infrastructure risk assessment and Marine Spatial Planning (consulting). I have a solid publication record with >30 peer reviewed publications, considerable experience leading research projects and excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Areas of interest: Mediterranean maritime history and ships, particularly all aspects of Early-Modern Galleys: engineering, economical, operational, military, political, cultural and social.

An aero-space engineer with nearly 50 years of experience in design and development of major defense systems; went back to school and got a PhD in Science and Technology Studies (i.e. the study of how society, politics, and culture affect scientific research and technological innovation, and how these, in turn, affect society, politics and culture). Rather than follow the crowd and study some instance of modern technology I preferred to look back at Early Modern times and focus on a specific type of warship, the galley, which fascinates me both as an engineer and a historian. That has become my main area of research. In parallel with research and teaching on this subject I am now working on a second PhD, this time in art history, focused on the social status of artists in Renaissance Florence.

Throughout my academic career, my major goal has been to contribute in establishing to the interdisciplinary study of harbour geoarchaeology in the Mediterranean and the Black sea. My research tools include RSL bio-indicators (rocky and clastic coasts), sedimentology, and geomorphology. My objective is to better understand the evolution of ancient harbours, a theme I started 30 years ago. Using quantitative palaeoecological methods, I have moved from the characterization to the quantification of human impacts both within and outside ancient harbour basins.

Department of Maritime Civilizations

Research fields: archaeology, archaeometallurgy, metal objects from the Middle Bronze Age and other periods, social and economic aspects of the Middle Bronze Age, Maritime and land trade routes, metal sources, documentation and research of traditional and ancient technologies and Industries.

Dr.  Kan-Cipor – Meron PhD research referred to archaeological problems in the Middle Bronze Age II (MBII) concerning the production and usage of tin bronze and arsenical copper weapons found in the Southern Levant archaeological sites. This research also analyzed the known “Warriors’ Graves” phenomenon.  These special Warriors’ Graves indicate the burial of a high-ranking member of society with elevated status.

Dr.  Kan-Cipor – Meron works with Prof. Shalev in his laboratory of materials in archaeology at the University of Haifa, as well as on his research of traditional and ancient technologies and industries which conduct joined community and academic researches.

My main academic interests are aeolian/arid geomorphology, geoarchaeology and military geosciences. I have studied the episodes, drivers and palaeoenvironmental and palaeoclimatic significance of the NW Negev dunefield construction, applying methods at varying scales. Upon completion of a post-doc study at the U. of Haifa on the evolution of the Israeli coastal dunes, I will lead with Prof. L. Yu (Linyi U.) a 3-yr ISF-NSFC supported project on aeolian-fluvial interactions in the Negev and China. I am also researching Early Islam plot & berm agroecosystems along the Israeli coast and am part of a German-Israeli-Jordanian geoarchaeological team studying Holocene dust deposition in context with archaeological sites. As part of some of these studies I am investigating the utility of a portable OSL reader for chronostratigraphic work. I am also trying to decipher the relative role of terrain on past and current military activities in the Middle East.
