Tel Burna Featured on ASOR Blog

Posted on

The ASOR blog has a very nice blog post (and pic) on our excavations at Tel Burna – written by none other than our very own Joe Uziel! Go check it out here. (See below for excerpt). 

 In 2009, Dr. Itzhaq Shai and I initiated a long-term archaeological project at Tel Burna.  The site is located in the Judean Shephelah on the northern banks of Wadi Guvrin.  While described by a number of scholars over the years as a prominent ancient site, it is one of the last tells in the Shephelah to be excavated.  Since 2009, an ongoing survey, including several different methods has been conducted alongside excavations.  Thus far, 21 squares have been excavated in three different areas, uncovering a sequence of five strata spanning the Late Bronze Age IIB through to the Persian period.
