Abstract: Excavations of the Egyptian New Kingdom fortress in Jaffa (Tel Yafo, ancient Yapu), on the southern side of Tel Aviv, were renewed by the Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project from 2011 to 2014. This work is an outgrowth of the project’s reappraisal of Jacob Kaplan’s excavations in the Ramesses Gate area from 1955 to 1962. As the Egyptian fortress in Jaffa is the only one excavated in Canaan, its archaeological record provides a unique perspective on resistance to Egyptian rule from ca. 1460 to 1125 B.C.E., but especially during the second half of the 12th century B.C.E., when Jaffa was twice destroyed. Radiocarbon dates from these two destructions are presented, and it is suggested that they offer the clearest basis thus far for proposing ca. 1125 B.C.E. as a terminus post quem for the end of Egyptian rule in Canaan. The archaeological evidence, taken together with textual sources, yields a picture of local resistance to the Egyptian military presence in Jaffa likely originating in Canaanite centers located throughout the coastal plain.

Traces of Resistance to Egyptian Rule in Canaan: Excavations of the New Kingdom Fortress in Jaffa, 2011–2014 (Public Lecture or Presentation)
Title: Traces of Resistance to Egyptian Rule in Canaan: Excavations of the New Kingdom Fortress in Jaffa, 2011–2014
Abstract: From approximately the mid-fifteenth to the end of the twelfth century B.C. Egypt's New Kingdom empire was served by a fortress and harbor at the Canaanite port of Jaffa (anc. Yapu). The fortress served as a staging ground for regular military campaigns into Canaan and the administration of its imperial territories throughout Canaan. Although the outlines of Jaffa’s role has long been known from a handful of textual references, recent research by the Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project under the direction of Aaron A. Burke (University of California, Los Angeles) and Martin Peilstöcker (Johannes-Gutenberg University, Mainz) has led to a major reassessment of the Egyptian presence in Jaffa. The excavations have permitted not only an elucidation of the history of the fortress, but also the nature of interactions between Egyptians and Canaanites during this lengthy period. Of particular note is the evidence for violent interactions over more than three centuries, climaxing in the late twelfth century B.C. This lecture presents a synthesis of NEH-funded archaeological research between 2011 and 2016 and its historical implications for understanding resistance to and social interaction within the Egyptian stronghold of Jaffa during the New Kingdom.

“You have entered Joppa”: 3D Modeling of Jaffa’s New Kingdom Egyptian Gate. (Article)
Title: “You have entered Joppa”: 3D Modeling of Jaffa’s New Kingdom Egyptian Gate.
Author: Jeremy Williams
Author: Aaron A. Burke
Abstract: From 2011 to 2014, the Jaffa Cultural Heritage Project excavated several phases of an Egyptian New Kingdom gate complex located in Jaffa, Israel. Excavations in 2013 revealed extensive remains of the Level IVB/Phase RG-4a gate, which was destroyed in a major conflagration ca. 1135 B.C.E. In 2015, work began on a digital reconstruction of the gate's architecture and its environs. This reconstruction sheds new light on the gate complex and the interrelationships between its many architectural elements. The process has led to some suggestions as to how the extant remains might be reconstructed, but also illustrates how much has been lost and that such reconstructions are inherently dependent on excavated remains from other, sometimes quite distant, sites.
