Then/Now

I have some great pictures to share today. These came from Erin who worked at Ashkelon in 1999.

We'd love to hear your story and see your pictures as we look back on almost 30 years of excavation.  

We'd also like to remind everyone, we aren't done yet! We have two more years of excavation and some important questions yet to answer. Whether you would be joining us for the first time or the second, there is still time to create more memories at Ashkelon.

Did you know?

In 1985, the expedition stayed in one of the park campgrounds. In 1986, the team moved to the Shulamit Gardens Hotel. That hotel eventually became the Dan Gardens Hotel. In 2014, the Dan Gardens Hotel closed mid-season and the expedition moved to the Leonardo Hotel.
