Location: Kabri, Israel
Come dig with us at Tel Kabri this coming summer! When else will you have the opportunity to excavate in a Canaanite palace more than 3,500 years old, decorated with Minoan-style floor and wall paintings, and with the oldest and largest wine cellar ever found from the ancient Near East?
Period(s) of Occupation: Middle Bronze Age
Minimum Length of Stay for Volunteers: One week
Room and Board Arrangements
Tel Kabri is located in northern Israel, a short distance from Acco and Nahariyya; a longer drive from Haifa. We will be staying at the Western Galilee Field School, by Achziv beach just north of the town of Nahariyya. Rooms are air-conditioned; each has a kitchenette including refrigerator. Free Wi-Fi is available, as is the beach and a nearby swimming pool.
