How about paying to participate in a Roman Period dig in Bulgaria this summer? I’ve been asked to help promote the Bulgarian Archaeological Association’s 2007 Field School.
This really takes me back. I paid for food and board on my first dig, on Tel Hazor in the Galilee, in 1990. I was an 18-year-old grunt and shifted a lot of topsoil. That autumn I enrolled at the University of Stockholm to study Scandinavian archaeology, and look at me now.
