The Kelsey Museum of Archaeology at the University of Michigan has a long and impressive history of archaeological fieldwork activity in the Mediterranean, the Near East, and Egypt. Over the past 80 years, the Museum has helped sponsor nearly two dozen projects in Turkey, Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Israel, Libya, Tunisia, Greece, and Armenia. In the Field presents a well-illustrated and informative summary account, with accompanying bibliographies, of each of these significant projects.
