In July 2018 we will conduct the 19th season of excavations at Hippos-Sussita. We warmly welcome participants from around the globe to join us at the dig in Hippos. The excavation project is an international enterprise affiliated with The Zinman Institute of Archaeology, University of Haifa.
The official language at the dig is English, including the afternoon lectures and weekly excursions. The main excavation season lasts only two-four weeks and is conducted usually during the Summer. Some of the participants return each year and some are fresh. Few have some background in archaeology but are purely driven by passion and curiosity. The work in the field is demanding due to the nature of the labor and the heat conditions, but it is very rewarding and includes long leisure time and educational opportunities. If you bear the passion and have a strong will to study the ancient remains of one of the main Classical sites in the Roman East – Antiochia Hippos (Sussita) is the right place for you.
If you are interested in enrolling into the program, please visit the excavation website (http://hippos.haifa.ac.il/index.php/join-the-dig )to fill out an application form and read the accompanying links concerning the program.
We hope the information is straight forward, but do not hesitate to email us with any question you may have.
