2011 Amphibious Archaeological Field School, Akko, Israel

2011 Amphibious Archaeological Field School – Israel
Expressions of interest and applications are invited for the University of Rhode Island – Israel Coast Exploration project field school taking place in Akko, Israel, this Summer (July 1-22). We will begin finalizing our team after April 1st so applications are appreciated before that deadline. Please see for further information and contact details, and links to images from our pilot season in 2010. Contact Krieger or Buxton for more information and program costs. Qualified students may be eligible for financial aid.

The old city of Akko (medieval Acre) is a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the oldest continuously inhabited port towns in the Near East, with an extraordinarily rich history and archaeology influenced by many ancient Mediterranean civilizations.

Project co-directors Dr. William Krieger (URI), Dr. Bridget Buxton (URI), Dr. John Hale (University of Louisville, Kentucky), and Dr. Jacob Sharvit (Israel Antiquities Authority) will be leading a small international team in exploration and excavation of the submerged and buried Akko port structures and surrounding area, both terrestrial and maritime. The project is also a field school offering 8 URI Honors program credits (undergraduate), and we aim to have participants experience multiple aspects of an archaeological project, from basic manual site recording and excavation to geophysical survey and pottery restoration. In addition to a small terrestrial team, we will be selecting a core dive team of up to six experienced scuba divers who must have AAUS certification or AAUS diver-in-training status by June 2010.
