Final Report
From 2005 to 2010, a series of study excavations was held in Tel Afeq (Afek) National Park (Permit nos. A-4455, A-4706, A-5034, A-5356, A-5594, A-5869; map ref. 193691/667793). The excavation, on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority and funded by the Israel Nature and Parks Authority, was directed by D. Weinberger, P. Gendelman, Y. Shlomo, E. Klein and G. Shaviv, with the assistance of E. Bachar (administration) M. Pielstöker (Israel Antiquities Authority Central District), T. Tsuk (Israel Nature and Parks Authority) and students (fourth graders).
In 2005–2007, the students took part in the IAA excavation at the site, directed by D. Golan (Golan 2008). This excavation was conducted along the Cardo of Afeq-Antipatris, dated to the Roman period. The students participated in excavating between Section 1 and 2 of the Cardo (Golan 2008: Fig. 3), where the paving stones had been robbed; they excavated an earthen fill that contained small stones, pottery and a large quantity of modern refuse. In the years 2008–2010, the students cleaned the Cardo in preparation of the site for public visits.
