2016 Field Season Day 36

This morning, Co-Directors Lawrence Stager and Daniel Master along with Assistant Director Adam Aja and Physical Anthropologist Sherry Fox announced the discovery of a Philistine cemetery at Ashkelon. First uncovered in 2013, the cemetery was excavated for four seasons by staff and volunteers who did not speak of what they found until today. It's a remarkable story and more will come out in the next few days, weeks, and months.

Today, pictures from four seasons of excavation in the Philistine cemetery.
