Volunteering to Excavate at Gath

With John DeLancey

Archaeology is the rare science in which untrained laymen (and women) can make major discoveries. From the beginning we hosts of The Book & The Spade, and some of our guests, have invited listeners to volunteer to participate in these excavations, and some listeners have done so. On this program we explore just exactly how one goes about volunteering for an excavation in Israel. Dr. John DeLancey, co-leader of our May Israel tour, has volunteered on three different excavations in recent years. This summer he spent a week at the excavation of Tel es-Safi/Gath, one of the five Philistine cities and the home town of Goliath.
