Research

The Badè Museum continues the work of William Badè and the former Badè Institute of Biblical Archaeology by engaging in on-going research with the permanent Tell en-Nasbeh collection. Much ongoing research of specific artifacts and object types from the collection is done by museum staff and visiting scholars. This work has led to numerous publications, exhibits, lectures on the collection. Information on Past and Current Projects can be found using the links in the column to the left.

We welcome the investigation of various facets of the material culture record, including metallurgical studies and ceramic chemical testing, and encourage outside scholars to contact us with information on their projects and research proposals. We also support local scholars and graduate students by providing laboratory space in order to carry out research connected with material data from Tell en-Nasbeh and other ancient Near Eastern sites.
