Presentation Abstract

Household Archaeology, the study of household dynamics, has slowly but surely integrated itself into the larger field of archaeology and has seen development in further understanding the daily lives of older societies. At Tall Jalulin Field D, an unearthed domestic complex has revealed potential for household studies. How can Tall Jalul Field D aid our understanding of household archaeology? Through a preliminary study of ceramic typology in Square 1 of Field D, I have been led to believe that there is large potential in this field to learn more about the daily lives and household dynamics of the Late Iron/Persian Period (539-332 B.C.E.).

Biographical Sketch

My name is Alma Nizaye Cortez Alvarez, and I was born in Montemorelos, Mexico in the year 1998. At the age of three, I moved to Berrien Springs with my family for my father's studies in the seminary. After he obtained his doctorate degree in New Testament Studies, we moved back to Mexico when I was 9 years old. Six years later, I moved here to Berrien Springs from Montemorelos, Mexico with my family in 2013 and I have lived here since then. In 2016, I started to pursue my major in Anthropological Archaeology in the Behavioral Sciences program with a minor in Biblical languages. A year later I added in a second major in French Studies and left to study abroad for year in the ACA program in Collonges-Sous-Salève, France, in order to learn the language and advance my second major. I can speak English, Spanish, and French, and I am able to read in Hebrew, Greek and Latin. My hobbies involve playing the Cello, painting and learning new languages. Since I was very young, I have always been interested in archaeology, and I have been pursuing my career in that field since then. As of now, this is the second year that I have been involved in research with the Siegfried H. Horn Institute of Archaeology thanks to the help of the professors there and the Office of Research and Creative Scholarship who has sponsored my research.
