Archaeologist Eilat Mazar is born. Mazar is a third generation Israeli archaeologist and is most well known for her work at the City of David site in Jerusalem. She is a professor of archaeology at Hebrew University.This brief article seems to be recycled from 2014, but never mind. I hope Professor Mazar had a good birthday in 2018. She has appeared often in PaleoJudaica posts. A few posts about her or interviewing her in recent years are here, here, here, and here.
