M.A. thesis topic: Architectural Decoration at Herodium Focus on the architectural decoration found at Herodium, the first century BCE palace of King Herod and on the sources of cultural influence, which can be inferred from the analysis and the context of the architectural elements at the site. At the focal point of the research stands the architectural decorative assemblage which was revealed in the mountain palace-fortress. Those items, the vast majority of which have never been scientifically analyzed, are presented in detail. Several aspects are examined, such as the stone types and the carving techniques, typology and their archaeological and architectural context. Methodology includes on-site 3D-scanning and following computational analyses, together with more traditional research methods. The long-run excavation project at Herodium has identified several construction phases at the site, which can be aligned in a relative stratigraphy. Examining the architectural items in their archaeological context helps trace stylistic changes in the decoration that stretch across a chronological scale, and to identify trends of progress and development in Herod’s building program. Additionally, the project seeks to suggest a reconstruction for some of the architectural units and their decoration at the site. This reconstruction will help in understanding the architectural characteristics of Herodium in particular and King Herod’s architecture in general. Equipped with such knowledge, many questions might be addressed that the sheer architectural plan cannot answer, such as: which architectural units had the most elaborate decoration? What did the upper parts of the towers look like? etc. https://archaeology.huji.ac.il/people/asaf-ben-hain

M.A. Thesis Topic: Graffiti between Gentiles and Jews: Graffiti Art as an expression of the identity in Jerusalem and its Environs during Hellenistic and Roman Periods.
Abstract:
Graffiti, i.e. texts and/or images that are engraved or painted by people who are not professional artists in public or private environments, buildings, objects, and natural sites, are nowadays viewed as an act of vandalism. In antiquity, however, graffiti was considered a legitimate tool for expressing ideas, messages, or attitudes of the makers of the graffiti. The study examines the appearance of graffiti in the region of Jerusalem and its environs during the Hellenistic and Roman periods (second century BCE to the fourth century CE), relying on the approach of anthropology of art, which is sub-field within Social Anthropology, that considers every work of art, even the most simple and ordinary ones, as a meaningful creation. The graffiti will also be examined in its environmental–architectural context, since graffiti should be seen as an active intervention of the person in his environment. The purpose of this study is to study both cultural differences between different ethnic groups and changes in their use of this medium over time.

M.A thesis topic:
Spatial and stratigraphic analysis of the Late Natufian cemetery at Hilazon Tachtit Cave
M.A thesis Abstract:
The site of Hilazon Tachtit cave offers a unique window into a 12,000-year-old cemetery. The nature of preservation of site and the meticulous excavation techniques have allowed for a step-by-step reconstruction of the burial ceremony of a shaman. It is postulated that this high-resolution reconstruction can be projected to the rest of the site. Using CAD and GIS software, this study aims to reconstruct the different stages of use at this unique site, revealing complex ritual practices and interaction between ritual, space and landscape. Through detailed mapping of the entire man-made assemblage and the multiple burials, I intend to reconstruct the succession of inhumations and the activities that took place during the burials.
Research Interests:
  • Burial customs and ritual practice in Prehistory
  • Landscape archaeology and spatial analysis
  • Origins of agriculture
  • The Natufian Culture and Early Neolithic of the Levant
  • Computational applications in archaeology
Projects:
  • Nahal Ein Gev II Excavation Project since 2015
