The Department of Anthropology at the University of San Diego is proud to host Rami Arav, PhD, in a presentation of his continued archaeological work at Bethsaida, in the northern Galilee region of Israel. His talk, "Bethsaida: An archaeological journey into the lost kingdom of Geshur and the Galilee of Jesus," promises to be an insightful and informative investigation of state-of-the-art archaeology of the Holy Land.

The department is pleased that Dr. Arav's lecture coincides with a new course here at USD, Anth 390: Archaeology of the Bible, being offered this fall semester by Jerome Hall, PhD.

Dr. Arav teaches in the Department of Philosophy and Religion and the Department of History at the University of Nebraska, Omaha (UNO). Since 1987 he has directed the excavation of Bethsaida and is the director of the Consortium of the Bethsaida Excavations Project headed at UNO. The consortium consists of 30 scholars from 18 universities and colleges worldwide. Dr. Arav is also the director of the John and Carol Merrill expedition to the Cave of Letters.
