New excavations are set to begin at Khirbet Tibna/Tel Timna, which is identified as biblical TImna, the hometown of Joshua. The excavations will run from July 24-Aug. 19, 2022 and are directed by Dvir Raviv and Avraham Tendler of Bar Ilan University. Initial surveys have indicated that the city reached its height during the Iron Age II and early Roman periods. Some have suggested there is evidence of a Hellenistic-Hasmonean fortress at the site. The book of Joshua records, “When they had finished dividing the land into its allotted portions, the Israelites gave Joshua son of Nun an inheritance among them, as the LORD had commanded. They gave him the town he asked for-Timnath Serah in the hill country of Ephraim. And he built up the town and settled there.” The site of biblical Timna has never been excavated before.
