Laboratory of Coastal Archaeology and Underwater Survey

The Laboratory for Coastal Archaeology and Underwater Survey: The study of interregional interaction and human adaptation to environmental as well as political changes in the Mediterranean requires a unified exploration of sea, coast/port, and inland tel settlement levels. The lab is therefore able to conduct archaeological surveys and excavations both on land and underwater. The human resources in the lab include currently a lab director (part time administrative position), two post-doctoral researchers, five Ph.D. students and six MA students, most with experience in conducting research on both land and underwater. There are currently four active fieldwork projects (Tel Kabri, Tel Dor sites cluster, Tel Achziv sites, Newe Yam), and six publication projects (including Tel Achziv, Shavei Zion and the Acco port pottery) spearheaded by the lab.
