Program Description:
  Earn Spanish or Education credit in Jezreel this summer!
Spend two weeks of your summer excavating 7,000 years of history at Jezreel, a relatively new archaeological project in northern Israel. UE began cosponsoring the Jezreel Expedition with the Zinman Institute of Archaeology at the University of Haifa 2012 and has since taken a group of UE students every year. The ancient city of Jezreel overlooks the biblical “Way of the Sea,” the major East-West international trade route that linked the empires of the Euphrates and Tigris river basins with Egypt. Previous excavations have discovered remains of a heavily fortified royal enclosure, possibly constructed by Ahab and Jezebel (as described in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament). The site appears to have been occupied from the fifth millennium BCE through the 20th century, so it allows scholars and researchers to study prehistoric, biblical, and modern archaeology.
