Bible and archaeology news

The Leon Levy Expedition to Ashkelon announced last week that the first two volumes of the ongoing excavation’s final reports, Ashkelon 1 and Ashkelon 2, are now freely available for download from the dig’s Web site (digashkelon.com). The first volume, edited by directors Lawrence Stager, David Schloen and Daniel M. Master, provides an overview of the site and excavations. The second volume, written by Barbara Johnson, offers an analysis of the pottery imported to the site during the Roman period.

Throughout antiquity, Ashkelon was one of the most important coastal cities of the southern Levant and is mentioned several times in the Bible.* According to the dig’s Web site, future volumes in the Ashkelon series will also be made available for download, “making the excavation of Ashkelon one of the most accessible in the world.”
