Backgrounders on the Bible through Biblical Archaeology

1074 – Tel Dor


One of the major archaeological excavations in Israel over the last several decades has been Tel Dor, on the Mediterranean Coast between Haifa and Tel Aviv. We really haven’t featured it on the show, even though we visited it briefly during our 1996 Book & The Spade tour. Now we have a chance to get caught up on Tel Dor. Last week’s guest, Jeffrey Zorn, has excavated at Tel Dor.

Dor harbor has a number of shipwreck ruins, including one in the news recently.
