Gershon Edelstein

Gershon Edelstein was born in Argentina, but now lives in Israel, where he works as a Senior Archaeologist with the Israel Antiquities Authority. Interesting architectural finds in the hills outside Jerusalem prompted Edelstein to focus his studies on ancient agriculture and rural settlements. Edelstein’s survey of the hills west of Jerusalem revealed hundreds of carefully planned, ancient farms. He conceived the idea of the Ein Yael Living Museum, an educational project that combines continuing archaeological excavation with experimentation in ancient technology.
