Tell el-Wawiyat Excavation Project
Beth Alpert Nakhai and J.P. Dessel

Tell el-Wawiyat, excavated by Beth Alpert Nakhai, J.P. Dessel  and Bonnie L. Wisthoff in 1986 and 1987. Tell el-Wawiyat is a 0.4-hectare mound located in the Bet Netofah Valley in Israel's Lower Galilee. It was selected for excavation in order to explore Bronze and Iron Age Village society, and to redress the urban bias of archaeology in the southern Levant. Wawiyat was occupied over a long period of time, making it one of a special kind of village, which has been neglected by most archaeologists and is poorly understood.
