The tuition fee for this course is TBD.
FIELD TRIPS AND TOURS
As part of the educational component of the program for all participants, one day each week we will embark on an afternoon field trip. Sites visited may include Hazor, Et-Tel/Bethsaida, Caesaea Philipi/Banias, the Herodian Omrit Temple, and Nimrod's Ayyubid-Mameluke Castle, and are in some cases led by the excavators of these projects. Weekend and post-dig tours may also be arranged upon request.
