      Yes – you will need to pay for your own airfare. The charge for room and board is $400 a week.

    I would like to inquire about next season. Will there be another scheduled session of excavation. If so I would like the details. We are thinking of sending the pastor of our church who is very interested in archaeology in Israel.

    Is the charge of $500 include room and board or is the room and board an additional $400?
