BAT Archaeological Project, Oman – Looking for Field Archaeologists

December 15, 2009

The BAT ARCHAEOLOGICAL PROJECT is seeking available field archaeologists from Jan 5 – March 15 2010 (*THIS* Jan-March). Bat is a UNESCO World-Heritage site in the safe and sunny Sultanate of Oman (next to the Emirates) dating to the 3rd millennium BCE with one of the best preserved Early Bronze Age settlements/cemeteries in the region. The University of Pennsylvania (under Prof. Gregory Possehl) in conjunction with the Omani Ministry of Heritage and Culture has been carrying out excavations in the settlement area for the past three years. In this, our fourth season, they were due to expand their operations, but numerous members of the team have pulled out last minute for personal reasons. This leaves them unable to expand their excavations, so they are seeking last-minute additions to their field team.Under the stipulations of their funding, they are unable to supply salaries. However, they can provide all room/board/transportation within the Sultanate of Oman, and for those who are able to come for most of the season, they can pay for airfare.
