Cotsen Institute Publication Wins Ernest Wright Award for Best Archaeological Publication by the American Schools of Oriental Research


The Cotsen Institute of Archeology Press is pleased to announce that Martin Peilstöcker and Aaron Burke's History and Archaeology of Jaffa 1 (Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project 1) was awarded the G. Ernest Wright Award for best archaeological publication by the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) at its annual meeting in November 2011. The following statement was provided: 

Martin Peilstöcker and Aaron Burke’s work, The History and Archaeology of Jaffa, represents a significant contribution to our knowledge and understanding of the eastern Mediterranean. The volume includes a collection of essays on the material remains of Jaffa from the Middle Bronze Age to the Crusader Period, representing the basic framework for research on Jaffa, past, present, and future. Along with the recent explorations of Jaffa, the re-analysis and publication of materials excavated by the late Jacob Kaplan provide a research model for further works in larger projects of urban archaeology. The book richly deserves this year’s G. Ernest Wright Award.

The Cotsen Institute congratulates Martin and Aaron on the publication of this important work.
