Biblical Archaeology Review 31:1, January/February 2005
Digs 2005


Neither heat, nor sun, nor dismal headlines can stop waves of volunteers from participating in digs in Israel and Jordan. This summer it can be your turn to find out why. In the following pages you can read about almost two dozen digs, all of which promise discoveries you will treasure for a lifetime. There is arguably no better way to learn the history and cultures of a land that continues to inspire. The digs are open to people of all ages and all backgrounds, and no prior archaeological experience is necessary. All that’s required is enthusiasm, sunblock, a healthy back and a desire for the thrill of unearthing an ancient house, coin or jar.
