Archaeology Discovery Weekend is an annual event in mid-November, sponsored by the Center for Near Eastern Archaeology and organized by its Archaeology Planning Committee. The schedule typically involves Saturday afternoon and evening and Sunday afternoon. Events include Lectures by world-class scholars on a common theme, a Middle Eastern or Mediterranean banquet, a Kids Dig, hands-on lab activities, and a genuine Bedouin Hospitality Tent set up for refreshments.
The eighth annual Archaeology Discovery Weekend will feature WOMEN IN ARCHAEOLOGY: women as part of the archaeological record and as specialists uncovering that record.
