The Center for Archeaological Research

From the Director

The Michael and Sara Moskau Institute of Archaeology and the Center for Archaeological Research serve to encourage the scholarly development and research of the seminary faculty, students, and staff, seeking to train and inspire a new generation of biblical scholars to engage in current research in the disciplines of biblical archaeology and biblical studies. The center was established in 2003 by the Trustees for NOBTS. We will continue to host students and lay volunteers as part of our involvement in the excavations at Tel Gezer. Please keep checking our website for updates on the project.
