Archeologists discovered what they described as “stunning” mosaics while excavating the Late Roman synagogue in Hukok – an ancient Jewish village in the Lower Galilee – the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) announced last week.

UNC professor Jodi Magness is directing the excavations together with Shua Kisilevitz of the Israel Antiquities Authority, and UNC staff and students are participating in the work. The university is sponsoring the dig, as are Brigham Young University in Utah, Trinity University in Texas, the University of Oklahoma, the University of Toronto in Canada and the University of Wyoming.
