Excavations and Restoration Work at Tel Lachish: 1985-1994 Third Preliminary Report


David Ussishkin

Systematic excavations were renewed at Tel Lachish (Tell ed-Duweir) in 1973 by the Institute of Archaeology of Tel Aviv University and the Israel Exploration Society under the direction of Prof. David Ussishkin. The first five seasons, which took place from 1973-1977, were summarized in the first preliminary excavation report (see Tel Aviv 5:1-97), and the 6th to 9th seasons, carried out from 1978-1983, were summarized in the second preliminary excavation report (see Tel Aviv 10:97-175). The 10th and 11th seasons (1985 and 1987), the restoration work carried out on the Judean city gate (from 1985-1992), and the clearings (in 1993 and 1994) undertaken as part of the preparations to open Tel Lachish as a National Park, are summarized in the present report which is a continuation of the previous ones.
