1357 Sam Wolff – Gezer Excavation Update
Sam Wolff, an archaeologist with the Israel Antiquities Authority, co-directs the excavations at Tel Gezer (with co-director Steve Ortiz of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary). He gives a status report on one of the three current excavations at Gezer, which is aimed at clarifying the dating of the Iron Age Gate. (The other two are the survey excavation in the area around Gezer, and the excavation of the Gezer water system.) Sam reports the excavations in 2013 are expected to reach the target levels.
