The William F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem is pleased to announce the winner of the thirteenth annual competition for the Sean W. Dever Memorial Prize. This award offers $650 for the best published article or paper presented at a conference by a Ph.D. candidate in Syro-Palestinian or Biblical Archaeology. Authors may be of any nationality but the article or paper must be in English.

The winner this year is Josephine A. Verduci, a Ph.D. candidate in the Classics and Archaeology Department in the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies at the University of Melbourne. Her paper, “A Feather in Your Cap: Symbols of Philistine Warrior Status,” was presented in November 2013 at the Annual Meeting of the American Schools of Oriental Research in Baltimore.

The Sean W. Dever Prize was established in 2001 by Mrs. Norma Dever and Professor William G. Dever, in memory of their son Sean.
