ARCHAEOLOGICAL WORK

Huqoq is an ancient Jewish village near Migdal, the hometown of Mary Magdalene, and close to Capernaum, the center of Jesus' Galilean ministry.

In June 2011, Dr. Magness began a new dig at Huqoq, which had never before been excavated. What she has led her team to discover and uncover has been an exciting and intriguing surprise, both answering and raising more questions about the development of Christianity and Judaism in the Galilee in a common period, competing for the faith, minds and attention of area residents.
