Announcing the 2016 Season


We are pleased to announce the fifteenth season of excavations for the team from Concordia Saint Paul at Hippos of the Decapolis.  Excavation will take place from 3-28 July.  Housing will be at Kibbutz Ein Gev.

This season’s work will be divided between two areas. Part of the team will work on the east side of the House of Tyche, finishing a large work and storage facility. The rest of the team will work on the southeast corner of a building to the north of the Northeast Church, in hopes of clarifying its function and relationship to the church compound.
