iTELL HALIF
Excavations at Tell Halif, Israel, under the direction of Emory Professor of Biblical Archaeology Oded Boroski, continue to uncover remains from the end of the 8th century BC, when the city – possibly biblical Rimmon – was destroyed by the Assyrian king Sennacherib in 701 BCE in response to the revolt of King Hezekiah of Judah.  They won't be digging this summer, but you can take a look at last summer's work.
