Gezer Regional Survey

Tel Gezer Regional Survey Project is a sister project to the Tel Gezer Excavation Project. The scope of this program is to explore, chart and survey the immediate environs surrounding the ancient city of Gezer. Comprehensive field work began in 2009 and continues to be in the field every year. The results of the the multiple seasons in the field will be illustrated in a forthcoming publication, including details pertaining to the Iron Age rock cut tombs which have been extensively surveyed. The project made the news for its 2012 season during which the team rediscvored a lost Gezer boundary stone and discovered a new one, bringing the total up to thiteen stones in all.
