The Phoenicians and the Levant: courses taught by Dr. F.J. Núñez

Students of the Faculty of Archeology of the University of Warsaw have an opportunity to extend their knowledge on the history and archaeology of the Levant in the Iron Age and the Phoenician expansion to the western part of the Mediterranean. These are the themes of courses prepared by Dr. Francisco J. Núñez from the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology of the University of Warsaw.

Dr. Francisco J. Núñez is an archaeologist and ceramologist specializing in chronology and cultural exchanges in the Iron Age, as well as in Levantine pottery. For many years he has been professionally associated with Lebanon, where he participated in excavation projects in Beirut, Kharayeb, Chhim and Jiyeh, but above all, he is the co-director of the International Excavation Project in Tyre (al-Bass and Acropolis). He has also worked in numerous sites in other Mediterranean countries: in Syria (Tell el-‘Abed and Tell ‘Afis), Cyprus (Khirokitia), on Sardinia (Sant’Imbenia), and also in his native Spain (Cerro del Villar and Banimaquia).

The courses, in the form of a lecture and a seminar, held in English, are scheduled for the Winter semester. More information and descriptions of classes can be found on the website of the Faculty of Archaeology.
