From Israel to the Aegean, the editors and staff of Biblical Archaeology Review have had their fair share of dig experiences and travel adventures. Bible History Daily has compiled the stories of Hershel Shanks and others who relate their varied experiences on archaeological digs and what they learned about the world and themselves during their travels.
If you have a dig experience that changed your life and that you’d like to share, e-mail Bible History Daily at email@example.com. Be sure to put Stories from the Trenches in your e-mail’s subject line. Maybe we can add your adventure to our collection.
