The videography project aims to give an insight into the workings of our dig. If you use iTunes, you can subscribe to the show alternatively we have a good old fashioned RSS feed.

The videos are made by Anies Hassan one of our archaeologists. The idea is that the films are made entirely by archaeologists about our dig.
