Tel Anafa : The 1981 Season
Metadata[+] Show full item record
"The summer of 1981 saw the joint University of Missouri / University of Michigan team back in the field at Tel Anafa for nine more weeks of excavation at this rich Hellenistic settlement in the Upper Galilee of Israel. The 1981 season was the final season of the current series, which has concentrated on the Hellenistic and Roman levels of the tel. Preparatory to final publication, the principal goals of this last season were the verification of certain assumptions on which the restoration of the plan of the large Late Hellenistic stuccoed building (hereafter the LHSB) is based, and the clarification of the occupation phases and remodelings of that building. Specifically, we had four major questions about the LHSB: (1) the extent of the hitherto unexplored western sector; (2) the relationship between the luxurious stuccoed room at the northeast corner of the central court and the heating and drainage system some five meters to its south; (3) the function of the central court; (4) the extent of the building in the northeast."--First paragraph.
