Outdoor exhibit on ancient Ashkelon

EXHIBITION: New outdoor exhibit showcases rich history of ancient Ashkelon. Ashkelon has over 3,800 years of history (Rossella Tercatin, Jerusalem Post).

Outdoor museum exhibitions are a good idea in the era of coronavirus. I noted another one recently here. Of course it helps if you have a warm, dry climate.

Some PaleoJudaica posts on ancient Askhelon and the Ashkelon excavation are here, here, here, here, here, here, and links. I was a staff member at the excavation in the mid-1980s.
