The archaeological expedition at Deir el-Balah was carried out by the Institute of Archaeology of Hebrew University and was headed by myself. I would especially like to mention a number of the participants who were involved with the excavations and publications of the cemetery and settlement: Baruch Brandl (field archaeologist and stratigrapher), Gary Lipton (surveyor), Ann Killebrew (field archaeologist), Bonnie Gould (pottery registrar), and Zev Radovan (photographer).
The cemetery was published in Qedem 10 (1987). Two additional volumes in the Qedem series (a completion of the report on the cemetery and the settlement) will be published shortly.
