Jerusalem – Volunteers from 12 countries converged on Tel Shiloh, Israel’s ancient capital for 369 years, to resume the third season of archeological excavations at the site.

The Bible recounts how Joshua set the Tabernacle in Shiloh after conquering the Promised Land, and for more than three centuries, this was the center of Israelite life.

Led by Dr. Scott Stripling, the provost at The Bible Seminary in Katy (Houston), Texas, and director of Excavations for the Associates for Biblical Research (ABR), the archeologists are seeking to uncover the secrets of the multi-layered site, and especially those of the Tabernacle.

TPS was on site to get a first-hand experience of the exciting dig and to meet the volunteers.
