“Gathered to their forefathers”: Death and Burial in Jerusalem in the Iron Age

Over the past forty years exploration in and around the Old City of Jerusalem has revealed numerous family tombs dating primarily from the eighth and seventh centuries BCE, which also continued into the Persian period. Prof. Reich will discuss his excavations of a tomb complex near the Jaffa Gate and will provide an overview of its significance and the light it sheds on burial practices during the biblical period.

This lecture is the fourth and last within a series during Winter Quarter by Professor Reich. Along with Eli Shukron, Reich has co-directed excavations in the oldest part of Jerusalem, known as the city of David, since 1995. He has published numerous articles on Second Temple Period archaeology and Israel and is also known for his co-edited volume on The Architecture of Ancient Israel.
