Week 2, Day 3 — El Araj Galilee Field School

El Araj (Bethsaida-Julias) Excavation Project Season 6 (2022) Week 2 Day 3 (Tuesday) There were some significant advances today. In a square just outside the northeast corner of the basilica, the team uncovered a colored mosaic in what we assume were rooms in a monastery surrounding the church. Area D to the west has uncovered a large wall and various objects in their new square. Our grandson Will found the base to a glass goblet. And in the squares to the east of the basilica we continue to dig down uncovering a large room with the apse facing the church. We still are uncertain of its purpose. Finally, it was decided to uncover one of the mosaics from the apse that was found last season. It encourages us that there is more to be found.
