Visit to Kh. er-Rai – Very interesting!

Today I had the opportunity to visit the very interesting excavations at Kh. er-Rai, just to the west of Lachish (and about 10 km south of Safi), directed by Yosi Garfinkel, Saar Ganor and Kyle Keimer.

I’ll leave the description of the site to the excavators’ publications, but suffice to say that the finds are very interesting – and very important for understanding the late Iron I and early Iron IIA of the eastern Philistia and the western Shephelah.

What’s so nice about archaeology is the more we dig – the more complicated things get! :-)
