Today's post comes from Jing.
Hello, I am a rising sophomore from Harvard University. Participating in the Leon Levy Expedition at Ashkelon is one of the best experiences I've had. The amazing staff and volunteers have created a welcoming community, and I was able to learn many archaeological skills in the past few weeks. Archaeology is a comprehensive academic discipline, and the program exposed me to various aspects of archaeological fieldwork. From struggling to carry a guffa to freely wielding a pick, and from seeing no difference in soil to identifying stratigraphical changes, I have grown both intellectually and physically. Now I can say I truly love archaeology, and if I have a chance, I will definitely come back to Ashkelon!
