Research Opportunity for Undergraduates: One of the major objectives of the Jordan Field School is to provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to get hands-on experience doing supervised field research in anthropology and archaeology. This seasons excavations at the site will focus on four areas: the Islamic village on its western slope; in and around the northeast tower of the citadel; the massive Iron Age reservoir (perhaps one of “the pools of Heshbon”) and restoration of the foundations and mosaics in one of the Byzantine churches. As in previous seaons, our park improvement team will refresh in-situ archaeological exhibits; signage, interpretive paths and platforms, and the park landscape. A team of architects will carry out precedence studies and on-site investigations as a means to creating our 3-D moving impage animation of the unfolding history of Hisban. This team will be supported by a documentary film team whose task will be to produce several short films that will become part of the narration for the 3-D animation.
Costs: Register and pay for six credits at standard Andrews rates plus a fee of $1500. This covers international travel to Jordan and all in-Jordan lodging, food, weekend excursions and instruction.
