Khirbet el-Maqatir Field Reports 2008 - 2016

Whew!!! We finished the three weeks of excavations and even added an additional day. As was previously noted in our weekly reports, the dig season revealed many great features and artifacts that assist in understanding the society of the various occupational levels at Khirbet el-Maqatir. Everything from the walls revealed, the pottery re-constructed, the objects photographed, and even the color of the soil excavated provide clues to help reconstruct the biblical past. But, now it is time to branch out from Maqatir and get that bigger picture of the Bible that only comes from visiting the places we read about in Scripture. But where to start?

The third week of our final season ended in a fashion typical of final days at Maqatir over the past few years. Silos, underground networks of tunnels, mosaic floors, and coins from a variety of eras all came to light in the last few days of our dig season...

The days have blended together this week. We added an extra dig day Sunday due to our rained out day last week. Everyone was a bit unsure what day it actually was, but this we do know: It's now the weekend!...

The first week of our 2016 season was different than our normal first week.

In memory of Vanessa Morton, ABR supporter, author and archaeology enthusiast, who went home to be with Christ on May 3, 2016.

With the 2015 summer dig season complete, 22 volunteers took a day of rest (Shabbat) before embarking on a series of field trips in the Holy Land. While many of the sites visited are well-known, just as many are not well known to many of the group. But where to start?

The 2015 summer dig season is now in the books! We had an amazing three weeks of discoveries, sightseeing, lectures, and Christian fellowship.

The second week of our dig at Khirbet el-Maqatir has ended. Our early morning alarms have been turned off, and we are ready to relax for the weekend!
