6th Century Mosaic found at Tel Shikmona, Israel

Researchers have found a magnificent mosaics dating back to the Byzantine Period in the sixth century, while excavating at Tel Shikmona in Israel. The mosaics are thought to be part of an ecclesiastic structure.

The excavations are taking place as part of a project funded by the Hecht Foundation to expand the Hecht Park in Haifa, Israel and transform the Shikmona into a public archaeological park.

Archaeological excavations were undertaken in the 1960 and 70s, but the earlier findings have been damaged ever since by piled up construction waste and off-road vehicles.

Now excavation has started again by the Zinman Institute of Archaeology at the University of Haifa.
