2021 Season


Planning for Megiddo 2021 is underway! Get ready for June 27, 2021– the first day of excavation at Tel Megiddo next season!

We’ll be welcoming Team Members the afternoon of Saturday, June 26, 2021 and will be getting up before dawn on Sunday to start an exciting summer of digging. You can find all the information about our excavation plans as they become available on our website and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for all the latest news.


To our dear Megiddo friends from all over the world–we hope you are all staying healthy and doing well!

The situation in Israel is improving but, as in so many places, there are still restrictions governing certain activities and travel.

The Megiddo Team is watching developments closely in the hopes that we will be able to be on the tel in Summer 2021. We know many of you are also eager to hear news of our plans. 

If you are hoping to be with us, conditions permitting, we ask you to pre-register here . This will help us stay in closer communication with you as we learn more about the situation on the ground. We will send out a situation update to everyone on the pre-registration list in early January. 

If you need a Megiddo fix in the meantime, please enjoy these videos with great Megiddo vistas and provocative discussions between Director Israel Finkelstein and his colleague, the leading biblical scholar, Thomas Römer.
