"What drives me is the opportunity to challenge stereotypes."
"Our field school in the United Arab Emirates lets students tell a very important story. For a long time it was assumed that the region supported only nomads with camels, eking out an existence. Archaeology changes all that. Our site at Muweilah—a 3,000-year-old-settlement— reveals a complex society, politically and economically. Our students do sophisticated, scientific work—with a little Indiana Jones thrown in. What characterizes them is their enthusiasm for study, their willingness to push their limits."
