Prof. Naama Yahalom-Mack is Head of the Laboratory for Archaeological Materials and Ancient Technologies at the Institute of Archaeology at the Hebrew University. Specializing in archaeo-metallurgy (the study of ancient metals), she uses cutting-edge technologies to determine the origin of archaeological metals and other materials, to help understand ancient civilizations.
On this episode of HUJI Bites, Prof. Yahalom-Mack discusses her excavation at the site of Tel Abel Beth Maacah – and insight into the fascinating figure of the Wise Woman who stood up to the commander of King David’s army, and successfully negotiated her city’s salvation.
