*Applications due by April 5, 2011*

Each year the Leon Levy Expedition welcomes volunteers to participate in its work at Ashkelon. The current excavations involve both the discovery of new material and the advanced curation of all material excavated since 1985. A series of publication projects are ongoing, and volunteers are encouraged to learn about all parts of the archaeological process. Current projects include the detailed analysis of Iron I pottery, Persian pottery, and Middle Bronze Age pottery alongside the ongoing registration and analysis of new finds. Further, through workshops, volunteers are exposed to projects involving ground penetrating radar, flotation analysis, micromorphology, and other forms of scientific sampling.

For more information, including blog posts from the 2011 season, visit the website at digsashkelon.com.
