Dr. Jennifer Ramsay recently participated in a National Geographic-funded Archaeological Excavation.
Dr. Ramsay executed a quick but productive excavation project at the site of Shivta in the Negev Desert, Israel during April and May.
She plans to uncover information regarding the environment and economy of this Roman and Byzantine period occupation site.
This work follows a prelimary study produced and published in 2010 that uses archaeobotanical remains recovered from ancient dovecotes to look at issues of economy and ecology.
