We are grateful for the connections we’ve made with different archaeologists, specialists, groups, and universities.

Go Now To Shiloh: The 2018 Excavations Week Three 6/14/2018 - by Gary Byers MA

This past week of the Shiloh Excavations we had nine squares open – each 5m x 5m and sitting on a north/south grid. Our goal is to expose the architecture within each square and be able to relate it to what’s found in the next square. Along with the floors and installations associated with these walls, we can know where ancient people lived. But the pottery and artifacts found in the dirt associated with this architecture and installations tells us about how they lived. And we learned a lot about the ancient people of Shiloh in Week Three!

The Shiloh Excavations: Week Five, Season One 7/8/2017 - by Suzanne Lattimer

As we closed down the dig portion of our season, we prepared for sightseeing while a few of our staff prepared for restoration work. Lou and Ann Klauder finished up the pottery processing, while Abigail closed down the office over the week. Excitement reigned as the play began! We started Sunday afternoon at the airport to pick up the rest of our group. Due to a series of missed connections, we were only able to collect two of the seven people who should have arrived. We did not waste any time, however. On the way home we stopped at Beth Shemesh, saw the current excavations there and learned about the coastal trade routes in the area.

Every morning during this past week, the sun has risen between the hills east of the ancient tel of Shiloh, and we get to see the western hills capture this early light and see the shadows against those hills gradually fade. In this daily beauty, we have completed the third of four weeks of ABR’s Shiloh excavation. We had some of our team depart after the second week to return to classes or other obligations and had new team members arrive to the site for the third week. All workers have remained strong and dedicated as we confronted the highest temperatures yet on this dig.

From Ramesses to Shiloh: Archaeological Discoveries Bearing on the Exodus-Judges Period 4/2/2008 - by Bryant G. Wood PhD
