The Tel Burna Excavation Project posted information this morning on their Spring Dig Season. This is a little unusual in that most dig sites only dig during the summer months, mostly due to finances and schedules. But, they will be digging at Tel Burna in about a week. Tel Burna is one of the possible locations of the Biblical site of Libnah. The tel is located about a mile or so north of Beit Guvrin in the Shephelah.

When Jehoram was king of Judah, the inhabitants of Libnah revolted against the king because he did not follow God.

So Edom revolted from the rule of Judah to this day. At that time Libnah also revolted from his rule, because he had forsaken the Lord, the God of his fathers. - 2 Chronicles 21:10
