Excavations in the City of David

David Willner and Barnea Levi Selavan met up with archaeologist Yuval Gadot (Tel Aviv University), who generously gave of his time and knowledge to help them understand the City of David in First and Second Temple times.

Dr. Yuval Gadot of Tel Aviv University has initiated a long term excavation to explore several research issues in the Late Bronze Age and Iron Age periods. After two months in the field he welcomed David Willner and Barnea Levi Selavan of Foundation Stone’s LandMinds program to see the excavation taking shape.

On the Foundation Stone’s website you can watch a video of this interview and also listen to three audio segments.

At this point in time, only pottery remains of the First Century have been found. It will become more interesting when they go down the next layer.
