Claremont Graduate University Professor Tammi Schneider and her students traveled to Akko, Israel this summer to excavate and study the ancient city.
The group is documenting its work on the Akko Archaeology, Heritage and History Project in a series of video reports. This is the first report of the series.
The group's work is also featured in the Summer 2010 edition of The Flame magazine.
The dig is centered on the ancient tel of Akko, which was occupied from the late 4th millennium BCE through the Hellenistic periods.
