Excavations have resumed at Tel Jezreel, the home away from home for Ahab and Jezebel, after a 15-year hiatus. Jennie Ebeling of Evansville University is co-director of the new excavation and fills us in on what they found during their first dig season this summer. One of the finds, one of the largest winepresses ever discovered in Israel.
