Student volunteers

We invite students from all disciplines (especially archaeology, ancient history and theology) to join our excavation team. You can gain practical field experience with us and gain insights into archaeological documentation and finds processing.
We would be happy to certify your internship with us.

Senior volunteers

If you are interested in the antiquities of Jerusalem, are in very good health, are in great shape and enjoy physical exercise, and can handle heat well, the excavation in Jerusalem will offer you an unforgettable experience. You don’t need to bring any special knowledge or excavation experience with you, but a good portion of adventurousness and curiosity about foreign things.


The information contained in the book Archaeology of the Biblical World, UTB-Taschenbuch 2394, G├Âttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2003 (reprint 2004; new edition 2005; extended new edition G├╝tersloh 2012), and the notes on the history and culture of Palestine (chap. 9) should not be unknown to volunteers.


Good health (especially cardiovascular), good physical condition, heat resistance.
You absolutely need a private accident insurance (with the possibility to return to Germany) and a foreign health insurance.
