Dr. Daniel Master, Wheaton College

Daniel Master (PhD, Harvard University), Professor of Archaeology at Wheaton College, talks with David Capes about how he became an archaeologist.  He has spent much of his career digging up, processing, and writing archaeological reports on Ashkelon.  In recent days he and his dig partners from various institutions have turned their trowels to Tel Shimron, a large archaeological site just north of the Jezreel Valley about 8 miles west of Nazareth.  Despite Covid-19, the excavation had a full season in 2021.  If you want more information about Tel Shimron, check out the website: www.telshimronexcavations.com.  Dr. Master is always looking for volunteers.  If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at archaeology, why not spent three or six weeks in Israel next summer? It’s hard work, but it’s worth it!
