Goals

Goals of the Tel Aviv renewed excavations at Megiddo:

  • Recheck stratigraphy and chronology and strengthen the role of Megiddo as the key site for deciphering the history and culture of the Bronze and Iron Ages in the Levant and beyond
  • Re-investigate monuments exposed in the past: their date and cultural affiliation
  • Make Megiddo a laboratory for advancing new methods and techniques, especially those related to the exact and life sciences, such as physics-related dating methods, ancient DNA and geo-archaeology.
