Topic: Sacred Landscapes and the Ancient Town of Nebo

Dr. Foran has worked with the Tell Madaba Archaeological Project (Nebo) since 1998. She became Assistant Director of the project in 2001 and Director in 2006. She has more than 20 years of field experience in the Middle East and has participated on numerous projects in Jordan, Syria, and Tunisia.

Dr. Foran will speak about her ongoing research in Jordan at the ancient Town of Nebo.  The site overlooks the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea and was an important strategic, trade and cultural site from the Bronze Age to the 7th century CE when it was apparently abandoned until the 18th century.
