    In 1974, Dr. Linda Jacobs was invited to participate in an archeological dig in Iran. Digging In: An American Archaeologist Uncovers the Real Iran (Kalimah Press, 2011) reveals an Iran that the West never hears about. This book describes the practice of archaeological excavations, the history of the region, and the early civilizations that inhabited present-day Iran as well as the author’s story of self-discovery. Jacobs shares with the reader her emotional journey to understand Iranian culture that felt both strange and familiar. In spite of class, culture, and language differences, she and the villagers, who hosted her, formed a friendship that has withstood the test of time, distance, and political revolution. Dr. Jacobs will share stories and photos of her hosts when they first met and in 2008.

    Dr. Jacobs has served on the Boards of several nonprofits as well as a Fortune 500 engineering company, worked in the private sector with the East-West Group,founded a small consulting firm, and served as the Chief Development Officer and President of the Near East Foundation. Jacobs earned her Ph.D. in Near Eastern Archaeology from the University of Oregon and has conducted extensive field work in Jordan and Iran. She is currently writing a social geography of the nineteenth-century Syrian Colony in New York City.
