Quantcast
Journey to the Copper Age

Thomas Evan Levy, the Distinguished Professor and Norma Kershaw Chair in the Archaeolgy of Ancient Israel and Neighboring Lands at the University of California, San Diego, presents this lecture about the introduction of metal production over six thousand years ago, which created a "metallurgy revolution" that sparked social change in the southern Levant. He examines elaborate and prestigious metal objects created in this region, including crowns, scepters, and mace heads, and discusses the first Israeli-Jordanian-American-German international experimental archaeology expedition to locate the Copper Age trade route used by the earliest metalworkers in the Holy Land.
