The work week is Sunday to Thursday. Team members enjoy free weekends from Thursday after lunch to Saturday evenings (we provide dinner on Saturday nights).  Note that your Expedition fee includes your room on the campus for the weekends, but meals are NOT provided by the dig. See “Expectations” for information on eating over the weekend if you choose to stay on the campus.

Team Members are required to participate in all regular work hours. Daily excavation begins at 5:00 AM and finishes at 1:00 PM. Work is resumed back at the camp at 4:00 PM with the processing of finds, a requirement for all Team Members. Depending on daily needs, afternoon work will last between 1 and 2 hours.
