There is a special opportunity to see and learn how archaeology really works this Sunday evening, August 9, at 8pm Eastern Time. For just $10 (only $5 for ASOR members) you can attend a live webinar from the Biblical Archaeology Society on “Digging Deeper: How Archaeology Works.”
This affordable webinar is hosted by Dr. Eric Cline, an internationally renowned archaeologist with more than thirty seasons of excavation experience. His archaeological work ranges from Greece and Crete to Egypt, Israel, and Jordan. Dr. Cline is also a Pulitzer-nominated author and is currently co-directing a new dig at biblical Hazor with Yossi Garfinkel, the archaeologist with whom I have worked for years.
Your $10 (or $5) registration includes several benefits:
- Get a firsthand look at how archaeology really does work. Break through media misconceptions and see how archaeologists perform their craft. How do they know where to dig? What is it like to discover something? How do we know how old something is? Who keeps the artifacts? What can these finds tell us about people and events from the past?
- The Biblical Archaeology Society (BAS) will include an exclusive subscription discount for all webinar registrants: 1 Year of All Access to Biblical Archaeology Review (library, digital, and print) for only $0.99/month. You will be emailed the discount link when you register and pay for the webinar. This is a great value by itself!
- Registrants also receive a 25% discount coupon code for Dr. Cline’s new book, Digging Deeper (retail: $12.95), published by Princeton University Press.
- All proceeds will help to fund scholarships and virtual resources for ASOR members and recipients. ASOR (American Schools of Oriental Research) is a consortium of scholars and students who work together to facilitate understanding of people and cultures from the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean world.
To register and pay, click here. Again, the price is $5 for ASOR members and $10 for non-members. To receive your ASOR member discount, log into the online store. If you are new to ASOR, please click on the “New Visitor Registration” link. Please e-mail email@example.com with any questions or issues with registering.
You will be e-mailed the Zoom Webinar link prior to the lecture on August 9, 2020.
Prof. Cline graciously offered my 2014 Bible Lands tour group a personal guided tour of Megiddo. I had inquired about a staff member taking us around since many in my group were working at the Lachish excavation that year. I had visited Megiddo numerous times previously but no visit before or since has offered what he did. It was an entertaining, insightful journey through the site and its history, sprinkled with fun anecdotes.
This webinar will be worth far more than the small expense. I hope you will join!
