2016 Offseason Week 11

Signs of spring are everywhere in Ashkelon. The site was visited by several staff members recently and they sent back these pictures.

A fox has taken up residence on top of the containers in the Pottery Compound.

Grid 32, which was excavated for a single season in 2014, is overgrown with wild flowers.

The first group of supervisors heads over in two months and the 2016 field season is right around the corner. There is still time to submit a volunteer application. The deadline to apply is April 6th. There is also time to submit your stories and photos as we look to commemorate the Leon Levy Expedition to Ashkelon.

Coming to Israel this summer? There will be a week long series of events from July 3rd through the 10th. Tours, lectures and a special event at the Rockefeller highlight the week's activities.
