Summer Kid's Program
Our church summer program for the children (ages 5-12) is entitled, "Destination Dig" and has an archaeological theme. In addition to Bible teaching, music, and crafts, we will set up a mock dig site that the children will dig at each evening. There will also be tours of the museum. The program runs July 13-17 from 6 to 8 PM each evening. The cost is $10 and you need to register your children online. The link to register is here. Contact the church at 530-662-2773 for more information.

Upcoming Lecture
On Saturday, October 2nd at 10 AM and 1 PM, Dr. Steven Collins will be delivering 2 different lectures concerning the Tall el-Hammam Dig (Sodom) in Jordan. Dr. Collins is the Director of the dig and will have some fascinating information concerning recent testing and the excavation of the palace area of the site. The presentation will be at the Museum and there is no charge. Refreshments will be served.

One of Our Recent Additions
Sometimes we receive a piece that its use is hard to determine. Pictured below is a small Iron Age pot with a tri-pod (3 legged) base. It is only 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. I have submitted pictures to 3 archaeologists but none have been able to determine what it was used for. My guess is that it was used for a funerary purpose and contained spices or incense, although there was no indication of burning inside. It was donated to the museum by Dudley Goff. It will go on display as soon as I get a good indication of its use!
