The New Archaeological Excavations at Lachish
(1973–1994)

David Ussishkin

Tel Aviv 2004


This publication is the final report of the renewed excavations and restoration work carried out at Tel Lachish between 1973 and 1994 by the Institute of Archaeology of Tel Aviv University under the direction of David Ussishkin. The comprehensive report, published in five volumes, was edited and largely written by David Ussishkin, and contains contributions by 62 scholars from Israel and abroad. The report covers a wide variety of important subjects—stratigraphy, architecture, chronology, inscriptions, pottery and other finds, as well as many in-depth studies on specific topics. Lachish is one of the major biblical era sites in the Land of Israel. As such, the report will be an essential tool for anyone exploring the history and material culture of the Bronze and Iron Ages in the Levant.
