Experience a region of the world that has been a cultural crossroads for most of history. Penn Museum excavations at the great city of Gibeon, where Biblical Joshua ordered the sun to stand still, yielded the remains of a cemetery, and evidence of a thriving early wine trade. See the magnificent terracotta sarcophagi in which the Canaanites and ancient Israelites buried their dead, and discover the complex context in which the Biblical stories took place.
This is a public tour and it is included in general Museum admission. Advance reservations are not required.
