"We have enjoyed the shelter of your 30' yurt over our excavation site for 5 months now, and are very pleased with it. It casts a perfect, flat light for excavation and photography, and saves us the headaches of covering and recovering the excavation on a daily basis. The excavation site is in southeastern Utah, an early Puebloan pit house dating to the late 700s A.D." Winston Hurst See the full testimonial

Setting up a Shelter Systems' Dome
You get a lot more volume for your money as you go up in diameter. When you step inside the 18' Archeology Excavation Shelter after being in the 14', the 18 ' feels twice as big. The 20' Archeology Excavation Shelter feels twice the size of the 18'. This is because the extra feet in diameter extends out in all directions (including up) creating a large increase in volume. Since the surface area of the covering does not increase as rapidly as the volume, the larger domes are less expensive for the space you get.
The 30' (9 m) Archeology Excavation Shelter Tent. Four people can pick this dome up and move it to a new site without taking it down.
Archeology Excavation Shelter Tent 31 Diameter 31'x11' High, 706 sq', Weight 270lb. $3130
Note that the Archeology Excavation Shelter 11' and 8' are constructed using a different geometry that has less panels and only one door (see the AES 11' ) photo above and the shape GroDome 8 on the GroDome page. The 14, 18, or 20 'ers each have four doors.
