The Joint Expedition to Caesarea Maritima conducted 19 seasons of fieldwork (1971-1987 and 1993-1996) under the direction of Dr. Robert J. Bull (Professor Emeritus at Drew University). Several hundred Medieval pottery sherds (Arab and Crusader) were recovered during the excavations in Area C during the 1971 and 1972. Field work in Area C was supervised by Dr. Edgar M. Krentz (Professor Emeritus at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Chicago). This webpage illustrates some of the study sherds from the excavation.
