Excavation work at Tel Rekhesh is getting into full swing after digging near the site’s central part started last summer. Experts are using radio probes and other high-tech devices.
Tenri University began participating in excavation work in Israel half a century ago. Its archaeological studies at Tel Rekhesh began in 2006 and involve institutions including Rikkyo University.
