Huqoq is an ancient Jewish village just 2.8 miles from 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 has never been excavated. In 2012, she, her team and colleagues from partnerting institutions made some remarkable finds.

Huqoq News - 2011 Season
One of the most exciting discoveries of the 2011 season are the remains of the eastern wall of a synagogue building of the Roman-Byzantine period (we did not yet reach the original floor level of the building and therefore do not yet know its exact date). Notice the large size of the stones in the wall (on which Dr. Magness is standing), which suggest a more monumental structure than we would have expected in a village. We will continue uncovering more of the synagogue in June 2012.
