Archaeological Views: Returning to Jezreel
The site of Jezreel, where Queen Jezebel was thrown to the dogs (2 Kings 9:30–37), has already been excavated—and described for BAR readers.a So why are we going back?
The excavation in the early 1990s by David Ussishkin and John Woodhead (of Tel Aviv University and the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem, respectively) produced exciting results, but we believe that there is much more to be learned. So we are organizing a new excavation.
