The Mount Zion excavation project has just launched an official website, complete with an application for joining in one or more weeks of the March 2008 dig. You can read about the dig staff, see who is sponsoring the project, read the history of excavations, discover what they found last season, but you’ll have to wait for the photo gallery. As I’ve said before, opportunities for volunteers to excavate in Jerusalem are rare and this is a great opportunity because of
1) the choice location;
2) the ideal time of year;
3) the knowledgeable directors;
4) the weekly field trip and lectures, and
5) the choice location.
