Reporb on Archaeology in Israel
"The Archaeology of Israel" by Albright Senior Fellow S. R. Wolff
appears periodically as a newsletter in the American Journal of
Archaeology. It includes reviews of large- and small-scale
excavations, salvage work, surveys, research projects, new
exhibits, and publications in Israel.
AlAR Feilowrr' Research and Activities
"Reports of Albright Fellows' Projects" appear annually in the
American Schools of Oriental Research Newsletter and in the
Albright Institute Newsletter. The annual Program Brochure
and Publications of Albright Appointees Based on Research at
the Albright Institute (1980-2000) are available at the Albright in
Jerusalem. Albright Fellows also share their research through
presentations at local institutions and at conferences abroad.
Lecture Program Abroad
The Albright Director lectures annually in NorthAmerica, Europe,
and the Middle East on Albright projects and on new developments
in the archaeology of ancient Israel, as well as on his own
archaeological research. Tel Wine-Ekron: Ceramic figurine from theTemple Corn ex 650 sanctuary

Modern Language Studies
The project is designed to investigatethe growth and development
In addition to the modern Arabic and Hebrew classes available
of the Neo-Assyrian Empire, which, in the 7th c. BC, stimulated
at other local institutions, Munira Said gives individual instruction
in modern Arabic at the Albright. the first "world market" in history and the extensive Phoenician
colonization in the Mediterranean basin. Among the key issues
to be examined are the development of local and regional
economic exchange systems, international trade, cultic
syncretisms, radical demographic movements, and administrative
systems as tools of imperial policy.
This innovative program incorporates archaeological, historical,
and environmental evidence from Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Greece,
Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Spain, Syria, Tunisia, and Turkey. Fifty
scholars working in these countries, which in antiquity were part
of or influenced by the Neo-Assyrian Empire, will cooperate in
the first such international research program. The project, organized
by the Albright Director, is under the aegis of the Council of
American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC), which is based
at the Smithsonian Institution.
