Lod, Lydda, Diospolis Journal
"Lod, Lydda, Diospolis" is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on the Archaeology, the History and the Heritage of the city of Lod and its Vicinity. Ancient Lod is one of the most important archaeological sites in Israel. However, its former glory is nowhere in evidence amidst the current difficulties the city is presently experiencing. The Israeli Institute of Archaeology has initiated a community archaeological project in order to restore the ancient town of Lod and develop it as a major tourist attraction.
