Tall el-Hammam Dig Project
The archaeological dig at Tall el-Hammam in Jordan will take place January 27th - March 1st and I will be helping during the month of February. It is too late for you to plan to help this year but you can make plans to participate next year during February. Our Museum will still be open, so, if you desire to visit the Museum during the month of February, please call 530-662-1675, leave a message and one of our docents will set up a tour/visit for you.
On March 10th at 3 PM I will be delivering a lecture/report concerning the Tall el-Hammam Dig in Jordan. I will participate in the dig during the month of February and will show a power point presentation of this year's developments. The presentation will be at the Museum and there is no charge. Refreshments will be served.
I will be taking 22 people with me on a tour of Israel during November 11th-23rd, 2019. I still have 10 spots available and invite you to consider taking part in a trip of a lifetime. I will offer devotional commentary and archaeological/historical information at each Biblical site. The cost is $2398 and includes hotels and tips, 2 meals daily, bus and guide, and entrance fees to all the sites. The airfare is not included and will be arranged later. Right now that cost is $1165 from San Francisco. If interested, I can send you a brochure. Call or respond to this email. An information/interest meeting will be at the Museum on Sunday afternoon, March 17th, at 3 PM, for all who plan to travel or are interested.
One of Our Recent Additions
The dipper cup pictured below is a part of the collection donated to our Museum by Dudley Goff. It will go under glass this weekend so I hope you will visit the Museum to view it and several other recent additions. Note the high handle on this piece that indicates it was used for dipping water, wine, or oil. It is from the Early Bronze 1 period and dates to around 3,000 BC.
