Cover Girl Recognizes Herself

I have been receiving your magazine for about three years now and I look forward to each issue eagerly. I could hardly express my surprise, however, when I recognized the person on the front cover of the January/February issue. After another second, I realized that I was the “unidentified volunteer” on the front cover!

I never thought when I was recording data, trying to keep the string from rolling off the table that morning, that it would lead to my being a “Cover Girl”! I framed my copy and ordered more and sent them to all my friends and family. Some of them have told me that after reading the articles, they were surprised to find out that there is so much to this “digging around in the dirt” that I enjoy so much!

During my sophomore year at the University of Colorado I took an ancient history class from Professor Robert Hohlfelder and discovered Caesarea Maritima. I became so interested in archaeology and history that I found out more about the dig and decided to major in Classics. I ended up participating in the dig at Caesarea Maritima in 1990 and loved it so much that I am planning to return in 1993.

I want to thank you for your wonderful publication and for the honor of being connected to it in this way.

You have clinched the renewal of my subscription for sure!
