Our winter program fetures three special lecture series:

“A Day in the Life” – explores the daily lives of men and women in ancient world – from a Crusader soldier to an ancient Egyptian queen, and many more. Each lecture is accompanied by an experience: creating a game board, making incense, etc. This lecture series is run in collaboration with the Israel Exploration Society. | “Excavating the 20th Century” – Archaeological research is constantly advancing and expanding its scope beyond the study of ancient artifacts, providing us with new perspectives on the 20th century. | “Spring Barrow” – A spring lecture series on new discoveries from recent excavations and archaeological research, in the best tradition of the Wednesday Evening Lectures at the BLMJ.
