Field trip to Safi and Shephela sites

Today, I led a great field trip of the first year introduction to Bronze and Iron Age Archaeology of the Dept. of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology, at BIU, to various sites in the Shephelah. This includes Khirbet Qeiyafa, Tel Azekah in the morning, and then we finished off with a 3 hour tour of Tell es-Safi/Gath.

The weather was great and the visibility very impressive – and we had a great time. Here are a couple of pictures from Tell es-Safi/Gath!
