We published incorrect dates for three excavations in our previous issue. Khirbat al-Mudayna will dig from June 25 until August 9 and asks that potential volunteers apply by March 15. Hippos/Sussita will dig from September 5 to October 7, and the Hazor dig begins on June 22 (not the 26th) and goes until August 3. We apologize to the digs.
