Those interested in joining a dig are encouraged to visit BAS online at http://digs.bib-
While viewing the 2013 dig opportunities, visitors to the BAS web site can download the free eBook I Volunteered For This? Life on an Archaeological Dig, an informative, amusing and sometimes touching collection of articles about dig life by ordinary excavation volunteers. Visitors can also download Cyber-Archaeology in the Holy Land: The Future of the Past, a brand new BAS eBook by archaeologist Thomas Levy and researchers from the University of California, San Diego, that is a must-read for anyone thinking about joining a dig this summer. This free eBook presents everything volunteers and even dig directors should know about the advanced technologies that are changing how archaeological evidence is recorded in the field.
The Biblical Archaeology Society is also proud to announce its 2013 BAS Dig Scholarships competition, which offers funding for selected applicants who wish to participate in an archaeological excavation. More information about the BAS Dig Scholarships, including application instructions, can be found at http://digs.bib-
