The Negev Byzantine Bio-Archaeology Project cover
Description The Negev Byzantine Bio-Archaeology Research Program is a European Research Council and Israel Science Foundation supported project looking into the reasons for the collapse of a complex society in an environmentally marginal region 1,500 years ago. Bearing crucial implications for present day concerns with sustainable development the project aims to address a dual problem: how were the Byzantines able to erect a flourishing infrastructure in the Negev Desert and why did they eventually fail.
