IWC Explores Tel Aviv's Ancient Past


Spring Semester 2019 at Tel Aviv University will take us from Iron Age Tel Qudadi at the mouth of the Yarkon River to pre-historic Jaljulia in the east and Persian Ashkelon further south.


Join us for a series of 13 lectures on the ancient history of Israel's vibrant urban center and its periphery.

From pre-historic times to the present, the area of Tel Aviv and its surroundings have adjusted to an array of civilizations, leaving behind a collection of material remains that tell a complex cyclical story of thriving prosperity and eventual cultural and economic decline.
