Digging in China
The Sinofossa Institute will combine paleontological digs, archaeological tours and cultural tours into a unique 10 to 14-day package for volunteers and students this summer. It offers two distinct dig/tour packages, one entitled "Dinosaurs Along the Silk Road" from July 16 to July 29, 2005, and the other entitled "Feathered Dinosaurs of the Great Wall" from August 20 to August 29, 2005. Each opportunity provides for at least several days of excavation at sites where ground-breaking (excuse the pun) discoveries are being made in the dinosaur fossil record, as well as tours of major archaeological and cultural sites in China.
