Nov. 19, 2017 – The Shelby White and Leon Levy Program for Archaeological Publications is housed at the Harvard Semitic Museum, which hosted the closing celebration for ASOR 2017 in Boston. Assistant Program Coordinator Peter Mueller presented the program’s recently redesigned website and many of the nearly 150 publications sponsored by the program since its founding in 1997.  It was a true pleasure to meet in person a number of the program’s grantees, and those who had their books on display were thrilled to show them off to their colleagues. There was a constant stream of visitors to the table, many of whom learned for the first time that the White Levy Program awards grants of up to $30,000 per year for up to three years to aid in the publication of terminated archaeological fieldwork from the Mediterranean, the Levant, Mesopotamia, and surrounding areas.
