Two sites that should be excavated!

Today, I went on a very enjoyable field trip for students from Bar-Ilan University, along with Dr. Yigal Levin and Dr. Shawn Zelig Aster. We visited a few sites in the Lower Galilee, including Yaham (modern day Yamah, one of the stops in Thutmoses III campaign to Megiddo), Megiddo, Tel Shimron and Tel Hanaton.

We had a great time, and even though at times that wind was quite strong and freezing, overall, the weather played along with us.

Tel Shimron (which I had visited many years ago) and Tel Hanaton (which I had not visited before this trip), are truly great sites, which definitely modern warrant archaeological excavations.

So, if any of you out there are looking for great sites to excavate in Israel – with long cultural sequences and important historical connections – definitely think of either Shimron and Hanaton!

And you can tell the IAA that I suggested this… :-)
