Posted: Monday, April 16, 2018
Jennie Ebeling was awarded a grant from the Rust Family Foundation to support the analysis and publication of artifacts excavated at Jezreel 2013-17. Ebeling is a University of Evansville associate professor of archaeology and co-director of the Jezreel Expedition.
The Rust Family Foundation funds projects that use primary archaeological evidence to answer major questions about cultural development throughout the world. Ebeling and colleagues in Germany, Israel, and the UK will use this grant to fund geochemical and petrographic analyses of basalt artifacts and geological samples as they continue to study the uniquely large and diverse ground stone artifacts assemblage at the site.
