In conjunction with the Pella Excavation Project, we have enabled people of all ages and backgrounds to experience the unique atmosphere of working on an archaeological dig.
Soon we will be accepting expressions of interest for the January-February 2021 excavation season at Pella, when we will further investigate:
Finds from the most recent season include an assemblage of stunning wood, bone and ivory furniture inlays, glass and faience vessels, faience and stone cylinder seals, metal figurines and ceramic cult stands - all from the Late Bronze Age, along with basalt, marble and limestone column capitals from the Iron Age through Islamic periods.
The dates of the 2021 Pella Season are:
The cost of participating in either group is around $5,500 (TBC*) plus your return airfare to Jordan. This fee includes food and board (and, hopefully, a lot of fun!) for the three weeks you will be at the Pella site, as well as internal transport to and from the site.
We do not arrange group bookings as most volunteers tend to have travel plans before or after their time with us at Pella. If you are interested in working at the important and beautiful site of Pella, please fill in the Pella Volunteer Application Form (pdf, 485KB) and email/post/fax it to us and we'll keep you informed as organisation of the 2021 season progresses.
