Abel Beth Maacah

Abel Beth Maacah has now seen two seasons of excavation and we checked in again with professor Robert Mullins of Azusa Pacific University. Abel Beth Maacah was a border site between Israel and Syria in ancient times, and a small Aramean kingdom before that. Today it sits near the border between Israel and Lebanon.

Our discussion included an update on the ancient silver hoard found during last season’s dig, as well as the probing of a large pre-Israelite administrative building.
