*** 1999 ARCHAEOLOGICAL EXPEDITION TO MONGOLIA ***
Crew at Egiin Gol, Summer 1998
A survey discovery--a group of Sanskrit inscribed Buddhist stones
from the 19th century
Our survey and excavations from previous summers have so far uncovered
stone tool sites, magnificent stone kurgans from the Late Bronze Age, burials
from the time of Genghis Khan, and ruined Buddhist monasteries. During the
1999 field season we will continue our survey into two remote side valleys
and begin excavation at four new sites.

The Egiin Gol valley is beautiful in the summer. While volunteers learn first-hand about archaeology, they will also have the opportunity to visit nomadic families, ride Mongol ponies through the valley, and fish the waters of a pristinely clear steppe river. There are a number of volunteer sessions available for June and July and a tax deductible donation is requested to assist with expedition expenses.
