Virtual Tour of Jerusalem’s Silwan/City of David with Emek Shaveh: Sunday April 25, 12:30-1:30 PM. When thinking about the political issues of Israel-Palestine, we may not think about the way politicized archaeology plays a role in the shifting of facts and narratives around land, history, and access. Join Emek Shaveh for a virtual tour of Silwan/City of David, an area of Jerusalem where this matter is at the forefront. The program includes a virtual tour from archaeologist Yonathan Mizrahi, as well as time Q+A. Zoom link will be sent out the week prior to the event on our mailer.
We hope to see you at one of this month’s exciting events!
