"The Archaeology of Insurgency: The 2012 Excavations of Jaffa's Egyptian Gate"

Aaron Burke is Associate Professor of the Archaeology of the Levant and ancient Israel in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at UCLA.  Since 1997 has participated in excavations in Israel, Egypt, and Turkey. As of 2007, he is co-director of the Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project, a multi-disciplinary archaeological research project focused on the exploration of pre-modern Jaffa in Israel.

His research interests include the archaeology of ancient Israel, Bronze Age Levantine societies, and the archaeology of warfare. His present line of research focuses on the cultural and institutional foundations of ancient Israelite society, in particular through the exploration of the culture and institutions of the Amorites during the second millennium BC.

He has authored a monograph on Middle Bronze Age fortifications strategies and a number of articles addressing his primary research interests, and is co-editor of the Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project series published by the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA.
