The team is in the final week before the dig. Email messages fly with ideas and questions. News from the Middle East flutters up butterflies. But in a week we will be on the way.
The blog you are reading will be the repository for for daily updates from the dig. Three archaeology students — Jon, Matt, and Kevin — will share duties at keeping you posted. But for the "real dirt" on the dig, check out the other blogs. Students will give personal impressions. Our dig's most experienced participant (Marc Hequet) will write for us and BAR. And two former diggers will offer a stateside perspective.
I invite you to follow the adventure!
