"We have great faculty who are not just great at teaching archaeology and teaching the Bible, but they are great archaeologists."

Accommodations and Directions

The excavation project will be housed at Neve Shalom. The Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salam (Oasis of Peace) Guest House is part of a unique community in which Jews and Arabs have chosen to live side-by-side. The students and staff will stay in the various suites on the hotel grounds. These suites will be within a short walking distance of the excavation dighouse where all the lectures and processing of finds will take place. Neve Shalom is located close to everything in central Israel, 20 minutes from Tel Aviv, 20 minutes from Ben Gurion Airport, 30 minutes from Jerusalem. All guestrooms have air conditioning, telephone, television, and refrigerator. The dighouse and hotel lobby have wireless availability for all guests.
