From Dr. Steve Notley in Israel: AJCO Dig Discovery!
Dr. R. Steven Notley, director of Nyack's Ancient Judaism and Christian Origins (AJCO), reported from the archaeological dig in Israel with the following update.
Monday, July 10, 2017: Great news! Today we uncovered portions of a mosaic floor from the Roman period. We have a large portion still in situ (in its original place) which we will continue to investigate tomorrow. Below see a picture of yours truly with an intact portion of 30 tesserae to give you some idea of its nature. This is a hugely significant find and may be evidence of a Roman-period synagogue. Only time will tell...
Hats off to Dr. Notley, the Nyack team and collaborating colleagues on this exciting news! Check out their latest update here.
