Haskel Greenfield

Haskel J. Greenfield was born in Newark, NJ (USA) in 1953, educated in New York City at Hunter College (B.A. - 1975 summa cum laude; MA - 1980), and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (M. Phil. -1980; Ph. D. - 1985) in Anthropology, with a specialty in Archaeology. He has taught Anthropology and Archaeology at various colleges in New York and at Indiana University before coming to the University of Manitoba in 1989. He is currently Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, Codirector of the Near Eastern and Biblical Archaeology Laboratory (at St. Paul’s College), and Coordinator of Judaic Studies at the University of Manitoba.

He moved to Winnipeg in 1989 to create an active Old World archaeology component for the Department of Anthropology. He is an anthropological archaeologist whose research focuses on the evolution of early agricultural and complex societies in the Old World (Europe, Africa and Asia) from the Neolithic through the Iron Age. Geographically, his research covers a large swath of Old World societies, from Europe (Bosnia, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Poland, Romania and Serbia), to Africa (Morocco, South Africa), and Near East (Israel and Turkey). In addition, he has conducted field work in various parts of North America (Manitoba, New York, New Jersey and Mexico). He is currently the co-director (with Prof. Aren Maeir, Bar-Ilan University, Israel) of the excavations of the Early Bronze Age city at Tell es-Safi, Israel, which is the Canaanite precursor of the famous Philistine site of ancient Gath (home of Biblical Goliath).

He is also part of the team excavating the archaeological site of Huqoq, an early Jewish community 2-5th centuries AD (CE) site in Israel where an early synagogue has been found. Students and volunteers are always welcome to join his projects. Feel free to contact him at haskel.greenfield@umanitoba.ca.
