2016 Excavation Plans

With Todd Bolen

It’s a long standing tradition throughout the 33 years of The Book & The Spade that we start the year by looking ahead to the planned institutional excavations. It gives us a platform for discussing what’s happening in biblical archaeology, and what has been happening in the past couple years. In 2016 one long running excavation, at Ashkelon, is coming to a close. But a number of excavations have started just in the last few years so there will continue to be a lot of work to do. And you never know what’s going to turn up.
