The Jezreel Expedition Experience

Not all archaeological excavations are created equal. As a PhD candidate specializing in Near Eastern Archaeology at the University of California-Berkeley, I can tell you that, mostly, the dirt is the dirt is the dirt. All over the world the earth yields beautiful, wonderful, exciting, mundane artifacts - jewelry, figurines, sickle blades, broken pieces of pottery, you name it. And those artifacts tell all sort of stories about the people who made those fabulous and ordinary and marvelous things, stories that are both familiar and surprising, stories that link us to them and show how different we all are, yet how much we are also the same.

Returning to the Jezreel Expedition

After my first experience with the Jezreel Expedition in 2013, I was really excited to return. It was such a great experience to work in the field and travel throughout Israel. I was only able to return for the last two weeks of the Jezreel Expedition 2014 and it's already been a few days since I got into the country.

Favorite Kibbutz Location

 

Hilda Torres, Michael Sullivan, and Kelly Goodner describe their favorite locations on the Kibbutz. The Kibbutz Yizre'el is the location where members of the Jezreel Expedition reside during their time at the excavation.
