Path Perfect: Reclaiming Jezreel

Based on the results of the LiDAR, the expedition conducted a landscape survey over approximately 1.16 square miles. They documented 25 cave tombs, 35 rock-cut tombs, 57 agricultural installations, 21 quarries, 68 cisterns, 94 walls and 26 natural caves that had been adapted for human use. These they documented using a handheld GPS unit, measuring, photographing and describing each one. They thus began to realize that Jezreel was much larger than scholars had previously imagined.
