INDEX of Sites

The official website for Lachish is at this LINK. This was recently posted on Tall Lachish and there are several free articles attached. LINK. You may also rely on the dig reports LINK if possible. You can use the Lachish reliefs in your reports but also mention other discoveries. Be sure to examine the importance of the "Lachish letters." You must of course use other publications (at least 6 sources) for an overview of the previous archaeological research and not just the website. Remember to provide"the historical background of the site (including history of previous archaeological excavations, if any), objectives of the current excavation, progress at the site, and significance of discoveries to biblical study.
