An annual tradition on TB&TS is our review of planned excavations for the upcoming year, to give our listeners the broad overview of what’s happening in Biblical Archaeology. This year I’m inviting John DeLancey back on the program for this discussion, since we will be visiting many of these sites during our 2018 TB&TS Holyland Archaeological Adventure Tour coming up in May.

John has lived and studied in Israel and has visited many of these sites on the more than 50 tours he’s led to Israel; he’s also excavated as a volunteer at some of these sites.

The digs we are discussing are, for the most part, the institutional excavations planned by various educational institutions and the Israel Antiquities Authority for 2018. But we also throw in a comment or two and some brief information about salvage excavations, another part of the excavation picture.
