Mosaics Provide Clues on Life in an Ancient Galilean Jewish Village
Archaeologists have been excavating Huquq, an ancient Jewish village in Galilee. Since 2012, the team of archaeologists from Tel Aviv University, Israel Antiquities Authority and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have discovered mosaics depicting Noah’s Ark, the Tower of Babel, Samson and more. To date, they’ve discovered about a dozen mosaics that decorate the floor of the synagogue. Just recently, they found a mosaic depicting the scene of the spies carrying the branch with a cluster of grapes.
Have a lovely day.
