|Dr. Pamela Gaber, director of the Lycoming College dig at Idalion in Cyprus, and incoming professor of archaeology and Judaic studies, will present “Idalion and the Bible” at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 21 in the Barclay Lecture Hall, G-11, Heim Bldg.
Gaber earned a Ph.D. from Harvard University with a specialization in ancient art of the Near East. She wrote her doctoral dissertation on the sculpture of ancient Idalion. She has participated in archaeological field work for more than 30 years, and has directed excavations at Idalion since 1987. She is recognized throughout Cyprus as an expert in pottery chronology—the tracing of the development of pottery types over time.
The author of several books and numerous publications, Gaber’s “Excavations on the East Acropolis of Idalion” was published in December. She recently authored a children’s book, “Daily Life in Bible Times: What Archaeology Tells Us.”
Gaber will join the Lycoming faculty in fall 2008.
