Excavation at Hippos

Concordia Lutheran Seminary extends an open invitation to take part in the dig at Hippos, Israel. The group leaves Canada on Thursday June 28 and returns Monday, July 16. An extension is available for those who would like to stay longer.

Two weeks (10 days) of digging at the North-East Insula Project, excavating a Byzantine church complex, will be interspersed with weekend tours of the Sea of Galilee region and the Jerusalem area.

The anticipated cost per person is about $4,500 per person. This includes return airfare (for most Canadian cities), ground transportation, accommodations, most meals, and most admission fees.

For more information, and an application form, visit the seminary’s website. The application deadline is March 15, but earlier applications are strongly encouraged.
