    Associate Professor Louise Hitchcock will draw on her current excavation of the site of Tell es-Safi/Gath in the city of Goliath, a joint project with Professor Aren Maeir of Bar Ilan University, Israel.

    Hitchcock's research is devoted to the recovery, documentation, and interpretation of contextual relationships as well as the interpretation of existing monuments, especially critical considering that many of the monumental structures of the Late Bronze Age are decaying through exposure to weather and human contact.

    Louise Hitchcock has extensive archaeological experience in the east Mediterranean, including time as the Visiting Annual Professor at the Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem and a visiting research fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study at Hebrew University, Jerusalem.

    Most recently Dr Hitchcock has worked as an Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens Fellow and undertaken excavation work in Israel, Egypt, Syria, Crete, and California.

    She is author of more than 30 articles on architecture and gender in the east Mediterranean.

    All welcome, no bookings required.
