Achievements and Projects
The Ancient Lod Community Archaeology Project attained many achievements during its activity in the local community. In addition to preservation and restoration of monuments, our activities raised public awareness to Lod's multicultural heritage, its importance, and the benefits of preservation and development of the old city and its historical monuments.
The highlight of the Israeli Institution of Archaeology projects in Lod is the Ancient Lod Restoration Project. This project will create a touristic district built in the local architectural tradition, with an embedded commercial area, as may be seen in many other historic cities worldwide. This project will be constructed according to sustainability principles and will be based on commercial entrepreneurship.
The Israeli Institute of Archaeology operates and plans several community and educational projects in order to promote the local community's appreciation of the value of the ancient sites, the heritage, and archaeology.
