Join us this season as we begin a new campaign to explore the destruction of the lower city at Late Bronze Age Hazor! Our new excavations at biblical Hazor during Summer 2020 will focus on the gateway and piazza in the lower city. Yadin excavated the eastern half of the gateway in the 1950s; the western half remains for us to uncover, including what promises to be up to two meters of destruction debris, which may hold answers to who destroyed Bronze Age Hazor and when. And the piazza, located just inside the gate, has never before been excavated!
Period(s) of Occupation: Late Bronze Age
