About

Old Testament Archaeology investigates the world of the Bible through the recovery and study of ancient sources in order to better understand Scripture. 

Overview

Students in Wheaton’s program are able to participate in original archaeological research at the highest levels as part of the excavations at Tel Shimron. 

The project is led by Wheaton Professor Daniel M. Master, and it brings together scholars from all over the world to excavate the site of Tel Shimron, the largest site in Israel’s strategic Jezreel Valley. Research at the site began in 2016, and the team has already investigated a series of ancient cities dating from the Middle Bronze Age through the medieval period. This project offers students unrivaled opportunities, not only to develop as field archaeologists, but to interact with a team of world-class scientists who bring expertise in all aspects of modern interdisciplinary archaeological research. Long term support for the Tel Shimron excavations comes from the Museum of the Bible.
