1995-96 ANNUAL REPORT
Thomas A. Holland
Thomas A. Holland had a busy year helping to prepare art work and editing manuscripts for both published and forthcoming Oriental Institute publications. Further research was conducted on the dating and parallel material for the pottery and small finds as well as the completion of all of the halftone plates and line illustrations for the first of two final volumes on the excavations of the Early Bronze Age site of Tell es-Sweyhat on the left bank of the Euphrates River in northern Syria.
A book review of An Introduction to Biblical Archaeology , by Volkmar Fritz (Journal for the Study of the Old Testament, Supplement Series 172; Sheffield Academic Press, 1994), was submitted to the editors of Bibliotheca Orientalis . His article, "A Study of Palestinian Iron Age Baked Clay Figurines, with Special Reference to Jerusalem: Cave 1," originally published in Levant 9 (1977): 121-55, was reprinted in Excavations by K. M. Kenyon in Jerusalem 1961-1967, Vol. IV: The Iron Age Cave Deposits on the South-east Hill and Isolated Burials and Cemeteries Elsewhere , by I. Eshel and K. Prag (ed.) (Oxford: Oxford University Press for The British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, 1995), pp. 159-89.
