This past week, Deb Brown, who co-organized our panel at the Archaeological Institute of America’s annual meeting made the talks available on the YouTubes.
All the papers were very solid on this panel and it provides a nice overview of the state of the field. I offered a reflection on the paper in their immediate aftermath here and have more to say on the topic in here. Keep your eyes open for the next issue of Near Eastern Archaeology for some additional thoughts on the topic (with a more practical perspective) by David Pettegrew, Sam Fee, and me. (Hopefully we can make a pre-print of that available sometime soon.)
So here are the papers in one handy place.
