ANTH Grad Student Geoffrey Hedges-Knyrim receives NSF Grant

Geoffrey Hedges-Knyrim has received a competitive National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant to fund his dissertation research. His research examines the relationship between agricultural practices, the environment, and social factors during the Iron Age (c. 1200–600 BCE) of the Southern Levant (modern Israel, Palestine, and Jordan) using plant remains. This relationship will be determined using quantitative, stable isotopic, and radiocarbon methods using plant remains from the sites of Khirbat al-Balu’a (Jordan) and Tel Abel Beth Maacah (Israel).
