THERE'S A PRELIMINARY REPORT on the archaeological excavation at Yavneh Yam during the 1992-99 seasons, over at the Bible and Interpretation website. Yavneh Yam was the harbor for the city of Yavneh or Jamnia, a famous center of the Tannaim, mentioned often in rabbinic tradition. An important ostracon (oddly, there seems to be no image of it on the Web) was also discovered at Yavneh Yam many years ago.
