Archaeological Digs

To suggest improvements, corrections, or additions, please contact Dr. Rollinson

For links to general archaeological sites, see the Archaeology Links Page
Most of the digs listed below accept students for all or part of the season. Accommodations vary from tents or Youth Hostels, to Hotels with swimming pools and air conditioning. Fees and Credits / Tuition vary. Further details can be obtained from the Dig Directors or the Contact Persons.

Some of the links lead to the Israel Antiquities Authority Page at rather than directly to the page for the dig. This web site gets changed around frequently and links go dead.

NOTE - because of the present situation in the Middle East, some of the digs may not be in operation this year
