The Shikhin Excavation Project is a multi-disciplinary, international, cultural heritage project and archaeological field school whose goal is the recovery, preservation, and publication of the site of Shikhin in the Lower Galilee of Israel. We are affiliated with the American Schools of Oriental Research and licensed by the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Israel Nature and Parks Authority. Professor James Riley Strange of Samford University, serves as Director. Professors Mordechai Aviam of Kinneret Academic College on the Sea of Galilee and Tom McCollough of Coastal Carolina University are Associate Directors.

The archaeology is done by volunteers from all over. No experience is necessary in order to participate. We train all volunteers in American excavation and recording methods. Apply here.
