23.02.2022 - 25.02.2022

With the rapid rise in the economic importance of the bourgeoisie beginning ca 1870, Europe and America witnessed the creation of private associations, funds, and societies to finance archaeological expeditions in the "Lands of the Bible", complementing state-run institutions such as universities, museums, and academies of sciences and the humanities.

The workshop will bring together historians and archaeologists to engage in a truly interdisciplinary discourse.
