About the Author

Gideon Avni is the Head of the Archaeological Division in the Israel Antiquities Authority and a lecturer at the Institute of Archaeology at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. His academic interests focus on various aspects of Classical, Late Antique and Early Islamic archaeology, the cultural and religious transformation of the Near East from Byzantine to Islamic rule, and the archaeology of desert societies in the Levant. He has conducted extensive fieldwork in the Negev Desert, Beth Guvrin, Jerusalem, and Ramla.


In The Byzantine-Islamic Transition in Palestine: An Archeological Approach, Gideon Avni provides a synthesis of current knowledge on the archaeology of Palestine and Jordan in the period from the sixth to eleventh centuries ... Avni provides a huge service to other scholars in bringing together a large amount of recent, specialist material in an accessible format. * Phil Booth, American Historical Review *
