Dig into the Past

"I felt empowered by the first break into the ground. It really felt like I was uncovering the past through my efforts," says Megan Norris '14, who spent a month on a dig in Israel in the summer of 2013.

"Every part of the work during the dig felt magical. It was exciting to move dirt that had such a rich history associated with it—even though really it was only dirt. The magnitude of the importance of the dig was not always apparent, especially during long sweaty and hot hours, but at the end of the day/dig is all felt like a surreal dream."
