1991 Excavation Opportunities
From the Directors Chair: Starting a New Dig
Does a dig director look at an archaeological excavation differently than a volunteer? I have been both, so I am in an excellent position to answer the question. The answer is, well, yes and no.
Last summer Avner Raban of the University of Haifas Center for Maritime Studies and I co-directed our first season of excavationson land and at seaat Caesarea, the great seaport city built by Herod the Great on the Mediterranean coast of modern Israel. We call the expedition the Combined Caesarea Expeditions.
