L.I.F.E. Lecture - After 1177 BCE: The Survival of Civilizations with Eric Cline

Sunday, May 19, 2024 11 Iyyar 5784

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

In the years after 1177 B.C.E., many of the Late Bronze Age civilizations of the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean lay in ruins, undone by invasion, revolt, natural disasters, famine, and the demise of international trade. An interconnected world that had boasted major empires and societies, relative peace, robust commerce, and monumental architecture was lost. After 1177 B.C.E. will trace the compelling story of what happened during the next four centuries across the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean world. It is a story of resilience, transformation, and success, as well as failures, in an age of chaos and configuration.

ERIC H. CLINE is an American author, historian, archaeologist, and professor of ancient history and archaeology at The George Washington University. He has led excavations at Megiddo and Tel Kabri in Israel, where he uncovered the largest cache of ancient wine vessels in the Southern Levant. Professor Cline has won awards for six of his books,
including 1177 B.C.: The Year Civilization Collapsed, which was considered for the Pulitzer Prize and about which he lectured at B’nai Israel in 2015. His new book, After 1177 B.C., is the subject
of this lecture.

Cosponsored by the Biblical Archaeology Forum, the Biblical Archaeology Society of Virginia.
