Excavating as a Volunteer in Pella, Jordan

Over the last twenty-five years I have had the great good fortune to take part in three volunteer seasons excavating in Pella, Jordan, with Sydney University. The excavations are conducted by The Near Eastern Archaeology Foundation (NEAF) and have provided volunteers with the opportunity to take part in the unique experience of working on an archaeological dig.

MAHA was founded in 1978 with the aim and desire of promoting the study of Ancient History for all.

Since that time MAHA has grown into a diverse association which provides information on recent research, social events, lectures, the opportunity to exchange ideas and a meeting point for all ancient historians and enthusiasts within the university community and anyone with an interest in the subject.
