Researchers need your help to solve a centuries-old mystery.

On September 21, 2015, Israeli archaeologists announced that they may have discovered the tomb of the Maccabees, a sacred site of inestimable importance to Jews and Christians. The Maccabees were instrumental in preserving Judeo-Christian culture against invaders, and they founded Hanukkah.

To verify their findings, much more excavating must be done. And the Israeli Antiquities Authority wants your help. If you're over 16, and you're interested in combing through artefacts for keys to unlock a Biblical mystery, grab your bullwhip, don your best fedora and head over to the Holy Land this fall.

Here's the signup sheet for volunteers.

And here's a video of the site with more on its history:
