This summer we begin a new excavation at Tell Abu Shusha, a medium-sized tell in the Jezreel Valley, about 25 miles southeast of Haifa. Never before has the tell itself been excavated. The 2020 season offers an exciting opportunity to explore this important yet poorly understood Roman city in the north of Israel.
