      Saving the Stones is a three or five month training internship in
      conservation and historic preservation. The program is intended to give
      recent graduates of museology, archaeology, architecture, design, history,
      art, geography, and other related subjects, the opportunity to apply their
      skills and knowledge hands-on in the field of conservation.

      Held at the campus of the Center in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old
      Acre, this training internship provides intimate access to the veritable
      living laboratory for the study and application of practical heritage
      conservation methods and skills.

      Acre is an historic port city on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, and
      is home to remains of world cultures including the Hellenistic, Roman,
      Mamluk, Crusaders, Ottoman Empire, and the British Mandate.

      The program includes:
      Three intensive months foundational conservation and historic preservation
      studies, including theoretical and practical documentation and survey
      methods, and treatment planning through to application.

      Two months optional advanced practicum, during which the knowledge acquired
      by the foundation unit is applied and thorough personal research is
      conducted.

      On site practical application with ongoing national conservation projects.
      Including: mortar and stone preservation at David's Tomb and the Western
      Wall Tunnels, mosaic conservation at Caesarea, and historic building
      technologies in Acre.

      Throughout the program, interns work alongside conservation specialists,
      archaeologists, and architects of the highest professional and academic
      level.

      Accommodation and additional enrichment activities included!

      Tuition fee required but *generous tuition grants* are available to
      eligible applicants.
