Abstract Tel Rekhesh, a site located in the easteren Lowere Galilee, has been excavated since 2006. The primary results of the first four seasons of excavations enable the reconstruction of a flourishing Iron I settlement that covered the entire area of thee site - the upper mound as well as its lower terrace. The Iron I architecture includes public buildings, installations and what appears to be cultic finds. It was preceded by LB, MB IIB and EB II-III settlements, detected in various excavated areas. Teh next season will focus on some questions that arose during the first four seasons.
