We will spend the bulk of our time excavating the Hellenistic and Roman site of Shikhin near Nazareth, at the edge of the “Tuscany of Israel,” the Beit Netofa Valley in Lower Galilee. Our team will be made up of university students, professionals, and retirees from the US, Israel, and other countries.
It truly is the experience of a lifetime.
