Since 1995, under the direction of ABR Director of Research Bryant G. Wood (PhD, University of Toronto), ABR research and excavation has uncovered important archaeological finds at Khirbet el-Maqatir, just .6 miles (1 km) west of et-Tell. The discoveries include a city gate and wall system, large amounts of pottery from the time of Joshua, evidence of destruction by fire, ancient coins, a house dating to the first century AD, and a Byzantine monastery. This area is located about 9 miles due north of Jerusalem, near the modern villages of Beitin and Deir Dibwan.

We believe that as further evidence emerges as a result of the sound archaeological, historical and geographical research of ABR volunteers, the Biblical account will continue to be vindicated.

Join the ABR team in Israel as we continue in our Search for Joshua's Ai at Khirbet el-Maqatir!
