    About This Project

    This project will test the hypothesis that a cosmic airburst brought a sudden and catastrophic end to the formerly thriving Middle Bronze Age civilization that occupied the region immediately to the north of the Dead Sea. I will be collecting soil samples from the eastern Jordan River Valley which will be analyzed by collaborators back in the USA for meteoritic content and evidence of extreme thermal exposure.

    Blast off!
