The Tel Azekah Excavation team is built on an international mix of archaeologists, historians, scholars, scientists, students and volunteers, who travel from across the globe every year to join us in the field.
Alongside the excavation leaders is our team of administration and fieldwork specialists. It is our privilege to work with Dr. Liora Freud as our excavation Registrar and Ceramics Expert, and our incredible administrative team of Maddison Quail-Gates and Shai Berk!
