Yesterday, we had the honor to host a high level delegation from Chongqing University during their visit to BIU. I presented to them about the excavations at Tell es-Safi/Gath and about potential programs in archaeology (especially the summer excavations at Safi) in which students from their university could join.
Needless to say, the discussions and questions were very interesting – and indicated the big potential for programs to be developed between our two institutions. And hopefully, in the future, some of our team will be from Chongqing!
Here’s a picture of the visit:
