Ramat Rahel III

Final Publication of Aharoni's Excavations at Ramat Raḥel (1954, 1959-1962)

Oded Lipschits, Yuval Gadot, and Liora Freud

This book brings to complete and final publication two past excavations conducted at the site of Ramat Rahel. A major part of the report is devoted to publishing the results of Yohanan Aharoni’s long-term excavation project at the site during the years 1954, 1956, 1959–1962. The renewal of excavations at the site in 2004 triggered the need to reevaluate the site’s architecture and stratigraphy, and from that the idea to publish this report was born.
