      Dear all,
      In addition to the regular field school in archaeology that will be
      conducted during the coming season of excavtions at Tell es-
      Safi/Gath, there will also be a unique field school in archaeological
      science. If you are interested in applying to this unique, one of a
      kind in the world, program, please see the information below:

      Call for applicants for participation in the course
      "Field school on archaeological science"
      (For students who are registered in universities outside Israel)

      The course "Field school on archaeological science" is offered by The
      Martin (Szusz) Department of Land of Israel Studies and Archaeology,
      Bar-Ilan University, and the Kimmel Center for Archaeological
      Science, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. Registered students
      will participate in the excavation of the Biblical site Tell es-Safi,
      identified with Philistine Gath. The purpose of the course is to
      expose the students to interdisciplinary research that involves
      archaeology and the natural sciences, in the field. The students will
      experience interactive work that combines excavation and analysis of
      materials using an on-site laboratory. The course will emphasize the
      inter-connection between laboratory analyses and the archaeological
      context, and will include fieldwork, laboratory work, and lectures.

      The course will take place between July 12th and 17th, 2009.
      Accommodation and food will be supplied by the excavation organizers
      at Kibbutz Revadim. The cost for students who are not registered at
      Bar-Ilan University is $400 per week. The Kimmel Center will cover
      the costs for two weeks for the most qualified student (one
      scholarship only). Applicants with little or no archaeological
      experience must participate in one week of excavations at Tell es-
      Safi/Gath between July 5th and 10th, 2009. An option for
      participation in a supervised one week project at the site is
      available between July 19th and 24th, 2008 upon confirmation with the
      course organizers.

      The course is worth 2 US academic credits. Students interested in
      receiving the credit will have to pay an additional sum of $200 to
      Bar-Ilan University.

      Course organizers and their fields of expertise:
      Prof. Steve Weiner (WIS): mineralogical analyses, phytoliths, site
      formation processes
      Dr. Elisabetta Boaretto (BIU and WIS): radiocarbon dating, materials
      analysis
      Dr. Ehud Weiss (BIU and WIS): paleoethnobotany
      Dr. Ruth Shahack-Gross (BIU and WIS): geoarchaeology, micromorphology

      Applications are limited for students from third year undergraduates
      through Masters and doctoral studies. The best 10 students will be
      selected. Applications should include one paragraph explaining why
      the student is interested in participating in this course, CV, list
      of grades and two names of referees, and sent no later than March 1st
      2009 to:
      Dr. Elisabetta Boaretto
      Kimmel Center for Archaeological Science
      Weizmann Institute of Science
      Rehovot 76100
      Israel
      E-mail: Elisabetta.Boaretto@...

      If you have any additional questions, about this and/or any aspect of
      the Tell es-Safi/Gath project, don't hesitate to write to me.

          Hi Allison,

          The "regular" season will take place over the four weeks of July 5-31, and is of course open to participants with no or little experience. There is also an option to get academic credit for this, without participating in the "archeaology and science" advanced program. Both the project website www.dig-gath.org (which actually takes you to Aren Maeir's homepage) and the blog (gath.wordpress.com) have links to the full registration package.

          We're assuming that by July the present mess will be long over and done with. In any case, Tell es-Safi/Gath is about as far as you can get from Israel's borders. In fact, in the summer of 2006, we actually took in "refugees" who had arrived in order to dig at sites in the north of the country, at which the excavations were closed down due to Hizbullah missiles. We've never had any security problems, and we intend to keep it that way.

          Yigal
