P-22 Rebuilding Iron Age Tall Hisban: Creating a Theoretical Model of Tell Hisban During the Iron Age for Digital Modelling

Description

The goal of this research project has been the creation of a theoretical model of Tell Hisban and its environs during the Iron Age for use in digital modeling of the site. This model, taking the form of a drawn site map, utilizes excavation data from other Iron Age archaeological sites in the surrounding area. This data is then used to fill in gaps in extant knowledge of the site’s Iron Age settlement and generate the most likely layout of the historical site. Furthermore, this model has potential for use in informing future excavation of Tell Hisban and its environs.
