The TCU Master of Liberal Arts Program & Classical Studies presents More Than Just Mosaics: The Ancient Synagogue at Huqoq in Israel's Galilee, an illustrated talk by Dr. Jodi Magness, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

Since 2011, Dr. Magness has been directing excavations in the ancient village of Huqoq in Israel's Galilee.  The excavations have brought to light the remains of a monumental Late Roman (fifth century) synagogue building paved with stunning and unique mosaics, including biblical scenes and the first non-biblical story ever discovered decorating an ancient synagogue. In this slide-illustrated lecture, Dr. Magness describes these exciting finds, including the discoveries made in last summer's season.
