Jezreel Valley Regional Project Archaeology and History of a Regional Landscape

Publications and Reports

Jezreel Valley

Regional Project

Studies

The JVRP is proud to announce that it has negotiated a monograph series contract with Lockwood Press. The series is entitled Jezreel Valley Regional Project Studies. The objective of the series is to be a venue for the publication of the extensive new primary and synthetic data, including archaeological reports, environmental studies, and historical analyses. By making this material public and available to the research community in a timely fashion, we intend each volume not only to exist as a static testimony of the Valley, but also to become part of the iterative and reflexive work of the JVRP. This approach to accessible data and conclusions is a serious contribution both to the understanding of the Valley, in particular, and regional archaeological studies in general.
