We are completely delighted to announce that Martha Sharp Joukowsky's book, "Petra Great Temple, Volume III", is now available from Oxbow Books. We've just received a few advance copies in the mail, and they are glorious -- 598 pages filled with photos, drawings, stories, and analysis. The book, like Martha herself, is a wonder.

This series will include multiple guest lectures, a focused day-long workshop, and a screening of a new documentary about archaeological heritage destruction in Syria.

The latest issue of "Inventory", the newsletter of the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology, is now available online, featuring stories on the successful completion of a record-breaking SIX Joukowsky Institute students’ doctorates (and one master’s degree), and students’ perspectives on a Brown University Office of Global Engagement-sponsored class trip to Barcelona and Empúries, as well as Peter van Dommelen's thoughts on several significant developments at the Joukowsky Institute over the past year.

Special thanks to all who helped with writing and editing the stories, and contributed pictures -- especially the students of ARCH 1155!
