Religion and Society in Umm el-Jimal, AD 300-800: an update on Calvin University's archaeological research in Jordan and new opportunities for student participation (including fieldwork in Jordan in summer 2022.)
About the Speaker
Darrell Rohl is assistant professor of history and director of the archaeology program at Calvin University and co-director of two archaeological fieldwork projects in Jordan: the Hisban North Church Project and the Umm el-Jimal Project. The current focus of fieldwork at these sites is the relationship between local populations and religious practices and institutions across two key transition periods: from the Late Roman to Byzantine and from Byzantine to Early Islamic.
This talk is part of history colloquia series. These lectures are open to the Calvin community - students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends - and all are warmly welcome to attend. Guests are kindly reminded to follow Calvin's covid-19 safety protocols, which at this time includes wearing masks at all times in indoor public spaces.
