Logistics support

Prior to the dig, we offer to assist our clients in any dealings they may have with the Israel Antiquities Authority, the National Parks Authority, the Staff Office of Judea and Samaria and/or regional councils, so that they may receive their excavation license with as little hassle as possible.

We specialize in erecting expedition base camps (including for those who wish to camp on-site), as well as supplying all matter of equipment necessary for a successful excavation season at the highest academic level – all the while adhering to top safety standards. Likewise, we can meet the needs of more complex projects, providing a rich array of specialized equipment. We are also able to provide a work force comprised of serious and experienced laborers.

IAS also offers numerous excavation-accompanying services, such as surveying, photography (field, aerial, small finds and photogrammetry) and, as required by the IAA, conservation. Following the end of the excavation season, we can fence the area and either provide storage facilities for equipment and/or finds or transport the finds to IAA facilities.
