Why come to Ashkelon?

Hopefully you've all had the chance to see some videos by our fabulous staff and coordinators here at the dig, but I thought I would introduce everyone to some of the volunteers here. Volunteers are usually college students who are studying some branch of archaeology and they come to Ashkelon to learn more about how an excavation works. Over the next couple of days, I will be showing you some videos of volunteers telling you what path they took to lead them to this Ashkelon dig. 

Of course, anyone could come to volunteer to dig at our site (just check out volunteer page!)
