Things are starting to roll for the coming excavations

Posted on Updated on

Well, the ball has started rolling for both excavation seasons, with lots of planning, work in preparation, and so much excitement!!!!

We have a few large groups and random volunteers for the upcoming spring season, and we have begun receiving forms from volunteers for the summer season – remember, its never too early!!!

For those of you coming for the summer season, it looks like we will be staying at Kibbutz Ha-Lamed Hey.  They have a website (in hebrew only, but you could see some pictures:

From the name of the website, you can see that the location of the kibbutz is along the valley of Elah – the location of the battle of David and Goliath.  there is also a historical event dating to the establishment of the state of Israel, involving 35 fighters in a brigade, trying to make its way to isolated settlements, who were killed.  for more on this story – AMIT can add comments.

Can’t wait to get to Burna!
