Location: Akko, Israel
From May 23-June 12 2016 (to be confirmed), the History Department and Underwater Archaeology Laboratory at the University of Rhode Island, in collaboration with our local partners in Israel, will be offering a 6-credit multi-disciplinary summer school in Akko (Acre) designed for advanced undergraduates, with individual research experience options for suitably qualified graduate students. There will be both a land-based option and underwater archaeology option for scuba divers. Students will experience total immersion in the world of the Crusades: their history and historiography, literature, art, architecture, and archaeology; instruction will also cover the broader history of the Holy Land from prehistory to the present.
Please check back regularly for further information as we will be adding more details to this announcement including a call for applications, or contact Prof. Bridget Buxton at email@example.com to be advised of updates.
