Belfer-Cohen, Anna
Belfer-Cohen, Anna Image
Anna Belfer-Cohen (born November 3, 1949) is an Israeli archaeologist and paleoanthropologist and Professor Emeritus at the Institute of Archaeology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Belfer-Cohen excavated and studied many important prehistoric sites in Israel including Hayonim and Kebara Caves and open-air sites such as Nahal Ein Gev I and Nahal Neqarot. She has also worked for many years in the Republic of Georgia, where she made important contributions to the study of the Paleolithic sequence of the Caucasus following her work at the cave sites of Dzoudzuana, Kotias and Satsrublia. She is a specialist in biological Anthropologyprehistoric artlithic technology, the Upper Paleolithic and modern humans, the NatufianNeolithic interface and the transition to village life. Her work is widely-cited in the field of Prehistoric Archaeology and especially the Natufian culture. She began studying toward her first degree in archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where she also earned her MA (1981) and PhD (1988). Already in her undergraduate studies she participated in many archaeological expeditions in Israel, Cyprus and Sinai . Belfer-Cohen’s PhD dissertation (supervised by Professor Ofer Bar-Yosef) was dedicated to the Natufian culture. She was appointed full professor at the Institute of Archaeology, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in 2002. From 2005-2009, she served as the head of the university’s Institute of Archaeology. From 2014 to 2018 she was the head of the Authority for Research Students (non-experimental Sciences). Early in her career, Belfer-Cohen participated in excavations at the Lower Paleolithic site of ‘Ubeiydia in the Jordan Valley (the oldest site in Israel), at Upper Paleolithic and Epipaleolithic prehistoric sites in the northern Sinai Desert, at the burial sites from the Chalcolithic age and Early Bronze Age in the southern Sinai. During her MA studies, Belfer-Cohen analyzed the lithics and bone tools from the Aurignacian layer at Hayonim cave (dated to 35,000 years ago). In her work she identified the Levantine Aurignacian and its uniqueness in the Upper Paleolithic sequence in the area. Through the years she helped understanding the interactions of this hunter-gatherer culture with its European counterpart]. In her Ph.D. Belfer-Cohen discussed the technological and spatial aspects of the Natufian material remains from Hayonim Cave in the Galilee, including architecture, burials, lithic assemblages, ground-stone tools and personal ornaments. In this work she provided the basis for the modern study of the Natufian culture and shaped the important research questions, which are still employed by the current research. Belfer-Cohen took part in many archaeological projects, some that lasted several decades, such as Kebara and Hayonim caves, where she was involved in the study and publication of the findings. Selected recent research projects and contributions include:
  • The First Cemeteries – The nature and meaning of Burial practices in the Natufian Society. Cultural Complexity on the eve of the transition to agriculture. Studies of skeletal material as well as material finds from the sites of Hayonim and Hilazon Tachtit caves jointly with Prof. Leore Grosman (Hebrew University).
  • Reconstruction of the Upper Paleolithic to Neolithic sequence of Georgia, the southern Caucasus. A joint Georgian-USA-Israeli project directed by Belfer-Cohen on behalf of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in collaboration with Dr. Tengis Meshviliani, Georgia State Museum and Prof. Ofer Bar-Yosef from Harvard University. In this project the team established the chronology of the local Upper Paleolithic, with the arrival of Homo sapiens, and their local adjustment as compared to the Neanderthals of the preceding Middle Paleolithic. The project includes excavations at Dzudzuana cave, 1996-2001; 2006-7. Another central question in the project was aimed at establishing whether the transformation from hunter-gatherers unto agriculturalists wan an endemic innovation, acculturation of ideas from elsewhere, or the result of invasions of foreign groups. This entailed excavations at the Kotias Klde rock shelter in 2002-2005; 2008-2010. Currently, the team excavates at Satsurblia Cave (2010- to present), with Prof. Ron Pinhasi (Vienna University.

She has directed the excavations at Tiberias at the Sea of Galilee (http://tiberias.huji.ac.il/) since 2009. Her project, focused on the Islamization of the classical city and the study of its monumental Friday mosque, has been supported by various funds, including Van Berchem Foundation, Hirschfeld Memorial Fund, Amiran Fund of the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew University, Israel Science Foundation (as part of the collaborative project headed by R. Amitai – The Formation of the Islamic Society in Palestine (http://islamization.huji.ac.il/) and Thyssen Foundation. She has co-directed excavations at Khirbat al-Minya (2005-2006) with M. Rosen-Ayalon and architect G. Solar, apart from participating in other archaeological digs, often as a specialist in ceramics of the Islamic period, a topic she commands since her MA studies (The Settlement in Northern Sinai during the Islamic Period, summarized in J.-M. Mouton (ed.), Le Sinaï – de la conquête arabe à nos jours, IFAO, Cahier des Annales Islamologiques 21, 2001, pp. 3-36). She has written various articles and chapters on the ceramics of various excavations (including Jerusalem and Ramla), apart from teaching and advising on the subject. She has surveyed and researched the road-inns in Palestine towards her PhD thesis (1998-2004), and the results have been published in Cytryn-Silverman, K. The Road Inns (Khãns) of Bilãd al-Shãm, BAR International Series 2130, Oxford 2010. She has also written various articles on the subject of roads and road-inns during the Islamic period, and remains involved in the research on the topic. She will contribute an entry on this subject to Oxford’s Handbook of Islamic Archaeology, being edited by B. Walker. Cytryn-Silverman has participated in various conferences and workshops in Israel and abroad, and also organized local and international events. Soon the results of the international workshop co-organized with D. Talmon-Heller at Ben-Gurion University in 2009 will come to light at in Material Evidence and Narrative Sources: Interdisciplinary Studies of the History of Islamic Societies, Proceedings of the 14th Annual Workshop of the Department of Middle East Studies at Ben-Gurion, University of the Negev, June 30th – July 2nd 2009 (Brill: Leiden, forthcoming in 2014). The proceedings of the international seminar co-organized with K. Damgaard and held under the auspices of the W.F. Albright Institute for Archaeological Research at the École biblique et archéologique in Jerusalem, 7th-8th February 2013, will be published in collaboration with D. Whitcomb by Chicago’s Oriental Institute Publications Office. Cytryn-Silverman is also on the editorial board of the Institute of Archaeology’s in-house publication Qedem (since 2010) and of the new Journal of Islamic Archaeology (chief editor, B. Walker), and often acts as an external reader for the Israel Antiquities Authority publication department. In the past she has also worked as an assistant curator at the Collections Hall of the Institute of Archaeology (1988-1993), in charge of the Islamic study collection, but also involved in the organization of exhibitions.

David, Arlette Image
Trained as a lawyer (LLM from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Belgium) and as an Egyptologist (Hebrew University), I have published various interdisciplinary researches concerning the ancient Egyptian legal system, its conceptual frame, textual productions, linguistic registers, and legal categorization embedded in the hieroglyphic and hieratic scripts. The study of these scripts and the metaphorical processes they reveal have brought me to investigate the interplay of picture and script in various contexts and to propose new analyses of Egyptian works of art, backed up by Egyptian textual sources. I am now using the same structuralist approach I used in the analysis of ancient Egyptian texts to decrypt pictures of kingship at the times of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. Specializations: Semiotics of hieroglyphic script and Egyptian art; Middle and Neo-Egyptian languages; ancient Egyptian legal languages and legal system; Egyptian(izing) finds in Israel; iconography of kingship in Amarna.

Freikman, Michael Image
The mobility of ideas in the prehistoric Old World through the prism of megaliths.
The main subject of Michel Freikman’s postdoctoral research is testing the possibility of relations between the megalithic cultures of Prehistoric Europe and Near East and establishing their nature.  These goals may be achieved by gathering data regarding typology, absolute dating and archaeological material found in the context of various megaliths and comparative analysis of this data in order to detect possible links between adjacent areas. This, in turn, can create a map of the movement of raw materials, objects, technologies or ideas.  The existence of such relations, if proven, has profound implications on the study of ancient interregional relations in general and the study of prehistoric culture in particular. Michel Freikman holds a PhD in Archeology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His dissertation bears the title: Megalithic Architecture of the Near East. Case Study of the Golan. He has been Project Director of the Giv’at Ze’ev Regional Survey (MBII, Iron Age, Byzantine Periods) since 2013. He participated at excavation projects (among them Kh. Qeiyafa; Rujm Hiri and Al ‘Arbain). He was Visiting Professor at Moscow University in 2012, and taught at the Institute of Archaeology at HUJI. Dr. Freikman will teach a seminar within the Global Humanities Campus entitled Transregional relations in the Protohistoric Old World through the prism of the megalithic architecture.

Frumkin, Amos
Frumkin, Amos Image
Amos Frumkin is an Israeli geologist and speleologist. Frumkin, born in 1953, is a professor of geology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Frumkin was born in Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1953. His expertise is the geology of caves. As an active speleologist, he founded and directs the Cave Research Center of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
Research
Frumkin’s research fields cover karst, cave morphology, environment, and sediments, as indicators of palaeoclimatepalaeohydrology, geological history, tectonics, karst aquifers and human evolution. He also studies underground ancient water supply systems. He uses earth-sciences methods, such as radiometric dating and stable isotopes, collaborating with archaeologists, biologists and karstologists around the globe. He has authored or co-authored over 100-refereed articles and seven books. Frumkin’s Ph.D. thesis on “The karst system of the Mount Sedom salt diapir focused on karst geomorphology and hydrology of this salt diapir, and its palaeoclimatic implications. This was the first karst research performed in salt. Most of Frumkin’s studies are performed on karst terrains in diverse fields of research, comprising palaeoclimate, geomorphology, hydrology, palaeohydrology, geoarchaeology, human impact on the environment and ancient water systems. The research is mostly associated with underground (speleological) features studied using earth-sciences methods. He studies the underground interface between geoscience, geography, environment, and archaeology. An interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary view of the sub-surface is achieved by wide-scale interaction and cooperation with scientists in various fields. The research has been performed mainly in Israel, complemented with research in other countries such as Jordan, United Emirates, and Bulgaria. Additional collection of data is done over the globe, resulting in a global karst geomorphology volume. Some of the research is performed in underground laboratories in which measuring equipment was installed. Within an underground laboratory in Sedom Cave, salt cave speleogenetic processes are monitored for since 1980’s. Much of the data collection is performed by graduate students. Caves are treated as living organisms, with birth (initiation, inception), complex life history involving hydrogeologic, palaeoclimatic, biologic and anthropogenic processes, culminating in cave ‘death’ during which the cave is obliterated by filling or erosion. All these stages and processes are tackled in Frumkin’s studies. His data and interpretation often changed the previously accepted paradigm, becoming the new, widely accepted ‘common knowledge’. For example: (a) Oxygen isotopes fluctuations over glacial/interglacial periods in Levantine speleothems are dominated by ‘source effect’, consequently glacials were wetter than interglacials (rather than drier as was thought earlier, according to oxygen isotopes); (b) Hypogenic source of the ‘Ayyalon salinity anomaly’ (rather than an upper source); (c) Salt dissolution as the major undermining source of Dead Sea sinkholes (rather than earlier piping concept); (d) Natural caves have been widely used for refuge in the Merranean zone of Israel (rather than only in the desert); (e) Speleothems have been used in Israel in the past for production of ‘calcite alabaster’ luxury items (rather than only imported from Israel).
Karst
Frumkin studies the recharge vadose zone at the mountains in central Israel, concentrating on recharge through karst shafts and cave drips injecting water and potentially pollution into the aquifer. The integration of recharge over catchment areas is studied using spring monitoring and models. Much of the research is focused in the phreatic, confined and hypogenic parts of the aquifers. It is found that most ‘s carbonate caves have initiated and developed to full size under such conditions. Aging and dying stages of cave life are studied through excavations in filled caves. Caves preserve unique records of the geological history of their region. They form along structural lines, they are deformed and uplifted with the rock, and they preserve ancient sediments with geological records. Frumkin studied such features of tectonics, diapir rising rates and morphostructure of the Dead Sea basin and its shoulders.citation needed
Palaeoclimate
Frumkin has obtained detailed well-dated climatic records for the mid-late Quaternary in Israel. The results solve some important questions on climate change during the Quaternary in the Levant and other regions, and how it could/would influence humans, and the nature of climatic belts migration during glacial/interglacial cycles. The answers obtained have direct impact on understanding present and future climatic change. The palaeoclimatic studies were extended to lava tubes in Jordan, ancient wood preserved in caves, and to stromatolite caves in the Dead Sea basin. Paleoclimate records were obtained for various climatic regions, from Mt. Hermon, where freezing and thawing periods were reconstructed, through the northern-central Dead Sea catchment, where glacials were shown to be wetter than interglacials. The last interglacial was shown to be extreme in several ways, indicating possible scenarios of future warming. Environmental catastrophes during the Holocene received particular attention, due to their relevance to present and future global change.
Geoarchaeology
Among the co-authored studies are: Dating of early Paleolithic cave inhabitants; evidence for habitual use of fire at the end of the Lower Paleolithic; paleoclimatic corridors for human migration out of Africa; dating ancient Jerusalem water supply system; technical innovations to bring water into ancient cities; Extending the knowledge on Bar-Kokhba Revolt, ~1900 yr ago, through remains including papyrus documents and hoards of coins from caves; Comparing field evidence with historic and archaeologic records. In 2003, Frumkin led a team that radiometrically-dated Siloam Tunnel. He is the author of the generally accepted explanation of how a tunnel dug by two teams working from opposite ends was engineered by the ancient Israelites before the development of trigonometry.5 He found for the first time that calcite-alabaster was produced in Israel and not only imported from Egypt.
