This season we have an array of participants from all over, representing no less than 12 home institutions. Joining us for the first time this year we have a group from Xavier University in Louisiana, ably led by Professor Michael Homan (http://michaelhoman.blogspot.com/) and his son Gilgamesh.

After a very successful first foray into the Middle East, five more intrepid high school students from the Rowe Clark Math & Science Academy in Chicago, accompanied by the adventurous Maggie Culhane will join us for four weeks of fun in the sun.
Our staff join us from places like:
And KPMG (http://www.kpmg.com)
But none of us would be embarking on this big adventure without the permissions and support of the Israel Antiquities Authority
or the logistical and financial support of the Oriental Institute and our many generous donors – we offer our heartfelt thanks!!!
