Western Sahara Project

This is about as far from Egypt as its possible to get in Saharan terms – but it’s a great project and anything Sahara-related has to be good!

Dear all

This is just to let you know that we are looking for volunteers for the next season of fieldwork in Western Sahara. Please circulate this message to anyone who might be interested.

We will certainly be running a 3-week season of reconnaissance survey work from around 5-27 November 2010. We are also hoping to run a season of excavations from approximately 1 October – 13 November 2010, subject to the availability of external funding.

We are looking for volunteers for both of these components. If the excavations go ahead we will be seeking two sets of volunteers for this element, to participate in two consecutive 3-week excavation modules.

More information is available on the recently updated volunteers page of the project website at: http://www.nickbrooks.org/WS/WSahara-volunteers.htm.

Note you can now also follow the project on Twitter (http://twitter.com/WSaharaProject).
