Horvat Zagag

ZagagDuring 2005 an unusual project was conducted with the cooperation of the Institute for Galilean Archaeology of the University of Rochester. Financed by the Galileo Fund, a group of high school students from the Arab village of Arabe and students from Megadim high School at Karmiel, joined forces and excavated a small Byzantine monastery, in the center of the city of Karmiel. During the excavations, some rooms of the monastery, its olive-press and its chapel were uncovered. The dig was directed by Dr. Moti Aviam.
