External Review (4/2013)
The Shelby White and Leon Levy Program for Archaeological Publications (hereafter WLP) has funded 225 projects over the past 16 years, predominately in Israel, Greece, and the Near East along with some in other parts of the Mediterranean Basin and Eurasia.

The Review Committee was comprised of Dr. Gil J.
