ISRAEL
MEGIDDO

Northern Stables

On the northern end of the important Biblical site of Megiddo a structure was unearthed whose original function is unclear. The purpose of this project is to reconstruct the structure and to test the hypothesis that it was used as a stable for horses. The project was undertaken in conjunction with Tel Aviv University and the Pennsylvania State University. Chair of the Scientific committee is Megiddo excavator Israel Finkelstein, whose recent book, The Bible Unearthed (New York 2000), deals extensively with the site.
