The 3rd excavation season has started at Kursi Beach, and is already yielding a lot of new information and finds.
Our friend and colleague, Iddo Katz will manage the excavation, headed by Prof. Michal Artzy and Dr. Haim Cohen of the University of Haifa.

The excavation is now expanding and a new stage is beginning:

Tel Kursi, located at the southern part of the site, is a multi-layered mound from the Bronze Age that has never been excavated before.
The city of Kursi was then an important western gateway to the eastern and northern kingdoms of the region.
This part of the excavation will be jointly carried out by archaeologist Prof. Liu of Sun Yat-sen University in China.
