Farewell to 2015-2016’s Fellows, and Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Appointees

As we bid a fond farewell to the last of the fellows of 2015-2016, we are pleased to announce the fellows for the 2016-2017 academic year at the Albright Institute.

Excavation season is well underway, and as always, the Albright is a base for the high concentration of archaeologists and other scholars in the area. Thank you to all who attended our workshops, led field trips for our appointees, attended our evenings with guest scholars, partnered with us, or participated in any way. We look forward to welcoming the new fellows in the fall.
