Archaeological Field School

The 2020 season of the Shikhin Excavation Project has been cancelled. 

Please plan to join us in 2021.

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. 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.
