Join the team for the fourth field season at Tel Shimron, a site perched high above the Jezreel Valley on the Nazareth Ridge with a commanding view of Mount Carmel to the southwest. Occupied for over 4,000 years, Shimron saw the rise of ancient Israel, Jewish Galilee, Rabbinic Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Come discover the past and learn how to reach across the cultural divide to the world of ancients.
In 2022 join the team as they dig a Canaanite acropolis, Israelite fortifications, a Hellenistic villa, and a Roman neighborhood. Uncover daily life in the ancient world. It took hundreds of generations to create the site of Tel Shimron; help to recover their stories.
