We have been digging at the Canaanite site of Tel Kabri in Israel during every odd-numbered summer since 2005. There we have found a palace more than 3,500 years old, decorated with Minoan-style floor and wall paintings, and with the the oldest and largest wine cellar from the ancient Near East, dating back to at least 1700 BCE.
The site is located in a quiet rural setting within the western Galilee of Israel, only a ten minute ride from the historical town of Acco, with its Medieval and Ottoman old city, fishing harbor and traditional market, and the modern resort town of Nahariya.
