Support for Archaeological Excavation in Jordan

Dig seasons is coming up! I will again be traveling to Jordan to excavate at Khirbet Safra, an Early Iron Age I site from the time of the Judges! 

I have been saving up for awhile but I am still in need of some funds so I can travel and stay in Jordan while I excavate May 24th - July 3rd. I have my flight covered and I roughly need about $3000 to cover room and board at the hotel in Madaba for 6 weeks. I would like to have all of my funds gathered by April 1.

We had some exciting finds last year and we are hoping to build upon that project further this season. The data I gather will also be vital for my dissertation which I will officially begin after the summer. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated and you can keep track of my travels and excavations on my website www.archwithtal.comI upload YouTube videos on our progress during the dig as well. 

(Option) I often travel to churches and schools giving lectures on archaeology and the Bible so if this is something you are interested in, feel free to contact me and the donations from these lectures will go right to the finances for my trip. 

Archaeology is my passion so will you come be apart of history with me?
