Summer 2016: Geophysical Survey

We conducted a site-wide reconnaissance survey using traditional pedestrian survey and ground-based geophysical methods in order to determine the general periodization of the site as well as the potential layout of any near sub-surface architecture. It serves as both an extension and re-evaluation of the 1982 survey of the Yuval Portugali and Avner Raban.

Most Tel Shimron staff were directing the final season of the Leon Levy Expedition to Ashkelon.  Details of that exciting season can be found on the the blog and press page.
