Ashkelon 1 and 2

So, you worked at Ashkelon for a summer, two or three, or maybe even an eternity and you think you know everything there is to know about the site.  Not so fast. What about Grid 16?  Club Med?  The name of the assistant square supervisor in Grid 50 Square 49 in 1993.  Even if all your questions about Ashkelon aren't easily answered, there is a new source to use for your research.

As part of The Leon Levy Expedition to Ashkelon's committment to furthering scholarly understanding of this important Mediterranean site, we are proud to make Ashkelon 1 and 2 available to download free of charge. These two volumes, the first of which offers an overview of our first season of excavation in 1985 along with some additional reports and the second of which presents imported Roman period pottery, are the first in a ten volume series.  Eventually, each volume in the series will be available for download making the excavation of Ashkelon one of the most accessible in the world.

Planning has begun for the 2012 field season.  Keep an eye on the website for more information.


Meanwhile, I'll leave you with this:
