In the late summer and early fall of 2015, Dr. Richard Dunn conducted a geological mapping and drilling campaign at the site of ancient Jaffa, in Tel Aviv, Israel.  This activity involved work with international colleagues, including researchers from UCLA, Texas A&M, Haifa University, and independent consultants from Israel and Germany. In late September he returned to Haifa, Israel, to work in the Recanati Institute for Marine Studies, University of Haifa, on the description, photography, and sampling of all cores recovered during drilling. Samples were shipped to Norwich where Dr. Dunn undertook a number of analyses. As a result of his work, he co-authored a paper, currently under revision, on the archaeological geology of Jaffa and its paleo-environmental setting. He also wrote the first draft of monograph chapters on the geology and land use records for the ancient quarry site on Easter Island.   The monograph is a large compilation of all the work by the Easter Island Statue Project that has been conducted over the last two decades. This draft resulted in the compilation of information that was then used as the basis for three professional talks
