On September 9, 2015 Aaron Burke (Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, UCLA),  met a panel of CIAMS students (Jenny Carrington, Gabby Borenstein, Jess Pfundstein, Andrew Crocker), faculty (Chris Monroe), and researchers (Brita Lorentzen) to discuss his excavations at the Late Bronze Age Egyptian fortress at Jaffa, in present-day Israel. He also gave a CIAMS lecture the evening prior. The recorded discussion of about 45 minutes opens below.
