The project brought together archaeologists and volunteers from institutions on three continents. A team from the Peabody Museum, Harvard University is responsible for excavating Rogem Hiri; another from several universities in Japan has begun work on Tel ‘En-Gev; and a group from the Finnish Theological Institute, Helsinki, is excavating Mitham Leviah with Israeli staff members from Tel Aviv (from 1987–1989 the Finns excavated Tel Soreg). The excavation of Tel Hadar was organized as a cooperative effort by the New Jersey Archaeological Consortium (Jersey City State College, Kean College, Montclair State, Ramapo College, William Paterson College) and the Institute of Archaeology at Tel Aviv University. The director of the Land of Geshur Project is Moshe Kochavi, Tel Aviv University. Pirhiya Beck, Tel Aviv University, is responsible for the processing and publication of the artifacts. The field director for Tel Hadar is Esther Yadin, Tel Aviv University, and the co-directors of the New Jersey Archaeological Consortium are Timothy Renner, Montclair State College, and Ira Spar, Ramapo College of New Jersey. Also digging at Tel Hadar were, in 1987, a team from Cornell University led by David Owen and, in 1988, one from Mount Union College (Ohio), led by Don Hobson.
