My name is Victoria and I’m a recent graduate with a B.A. in Archaeology. While waiting to hear back from graduate schools, I am looking to my summer plans at the Huqoq archaeological excavation in Israel. I really need your help to make this happen!
While pulling my funds together for this summer’s fieldwork at Huqoq, Israel I’m giving crowdfunding a try and started a GoFundMe campaign!
If you are able to donate toward my airfare, room, and board I would be eternally grateful.
For those interested in joining the excavation, you can find more information about the site and the application at http://huqoqexcavationproject.org/. The Huqoq Excavation Project accepts both students and non-students, and those students who wish to receive academic credit must apply through the UNC Study Abroad Program: http://studyabroad.unc.edu/programs.cfm?pk=2081.The application materials are due March 1st, and for those not attending the dig for academic credit (and thus not paying through the university’s Study Abroad Department) the dig fees are due March 30th.
I attended this excavation last year and can answer questions for anyone who is interested in the program!
There is also an all-or-nothing fundraiser for the airfare of several graduate students who work at the dig that expires in 10 days: https://experiment.com/projects/huqoq-archaeological-excavation-galilee-israel?s=search.
