ANCIENT ECHOES: Archaeologist Mordechai Aviam, adjunct professor of Judaic studies and district archaeologist for the Israel Antiquities Authority, led a team of University and community volunteers as they excavated the site at Yodefat in present-day Israel. Three-dimensional computer models and other computer animation were used to re-create the site (above). The work will be explored in the national public-television broadcast of Echoes from the Ancients at 10 p.m. Thursday, December 17.
