Six brief sketches of archaeological activity in Israel. We see man-made caves used during the Bar Kochba rebellion against the Romans; the first ancient ship to be found in the Sea of Galilee in 1986;
We see also an ancient methodology for channeling water to conserve runoff now being studied by modern people in drought affected areas; the search for the port of Ashkelon; the silver plaques discovered with quotations from the Book of Numbers; considerations on the tomb of Jesus; how the district archaeologist works with modern construction needs in an ancient country.
