Welcome to the Dothan Publication Project's Site on the World-Wide-Web. Tell Dothan is an impressive archaeological mound in the northern Samaria hills, some 22 km north of Shechem. The site was excavated by Dr. Joseph Free in nine seasons between 1953 and 1964. The Dothan Publication Project is currently underway under the direction of Dr. Robert Cooley of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, bringing the results of these excavations to final, full publication.
