Current Issue

Summer 2020 • Vol. 46, No. 3

Summer is usually marked by archaeological excavations at significant biblical sites. In light of the current pandemic, however, many excavations have canceled or postponed their 2020 seasons. Even if you’re not able to participate in an excavation this summer, you can still dig into the Summer 2020 issue of Biblical Archaeology Review and immerse yourself in the biblical world.

Find a Holy Land Dig

To encourage social distancing in light of the current pandemic, our scholarship program has been canceled for the 2020 season.
Please also check with any digs you may be planning to work at. Many of them are cancelling their 2020 season.

Participating on an archaeological excavation is a unique and exciting way to experience history firsthand. For almost four decades, BAS has been connecting volunteers with the opportunity to participate in some of the most exciting archaeological excavations in the Near East. A wide variety of people take part in our featured digs, and individuals of many different ages, backgrounds, and cultures have come together to share the thrill of discovery.
