In 2004, she excavated the house of the "Last Jew of Auschwitz" in the little town of Oswiecim, Poland. Her research has been published in papers and books. "Digging through Darkness. Chonicles of an Archaeologist" appeared in 1995 and focusses heavily on archaeology at the Cape, South Africa. It was awarded the 1996 Book Prize by the Society for American Archaeology.

Carmel lives mainly in Princeton NJ where she is a Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Rutgers. The State University of New Jersey.
