Professor S. Rebecca Martin (Dept. of History of Art and Architecture) will present research related to her ongoing publication about the site of Tel Dor on the Carmel coast of Israel. Throughout its long history, Dor was a Canaanite city-state, stronghold of the “Sea Peoples”, an Israelite administrative center, Assyrian port, Sidonian-Phoenician town, part of the Hellenstic kingdoms and Roman Syria, Byzantine bishopric, and Crusader estate. Like so many other sites, Dor was abandoned during the Babylonian period. This paper will concentrate on the question of who returned to the site in the Persian period (from ca. 500 BCE) and how the spatial and temporal in-betweenness of Dor complicates our understanding of the archaeological and textual records in the pursuit of Dorian identity. Lunch will be served from 12 pm, followed by our seminar.
