Abstract

Since its start in 2009, the Tel Burna Archaeological Project has had an open-door policy, allowing for anyone of any age to volunteer, with no applied time limit. This inclusive policy has exposed many different types of people to various aspects of archaeological fieldwork and research. The openness of the project is integral to the project's philosophy regarding archaeological outreach, but poses several challenges. This paper presents the project's approach to community archaeology, the problems that we have encountered, and our suggested solutions to those problems.
