Project co-Directors
Koby Sharvit - Director, IAA's Marine Archaeology Unit and Will Krieger - Associate Professor, URI

would like to welcome you to ICE, the Israel Coast Exploration Project

The ICE project is a partnership begun in 2010 between Sharvit and Krieger, dedicated to their interest in Israel's amazing (changing) coastline.

We welcome scholars and students to join us on our terrestrial, underwater, and amphibious projects.

Koby is in the water whenever the sun is shining (a lucky man). Krieger splits time between the classroom at URI and the dirt (or water) in Israel.
