ACADEMIC PROGRAM

We are educators as well as researchers and we are committed to providing a top-rate educational experience for all participants. A series of hands-on field lectures provide the basics of excavation techniques and evening lectures by experts working in a variety of subfields of archaeology enrich the student's understanding of the larger field. Academic credit is available through Hebrew Union College and Includes four lectures a week and one field trip (the 3 credit course requires a minimum of 4 weeks participation). 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.
