Fieldwork: HIPPOS-SUSSITA ARCHAEOLOGY FIELD SCHOOL

Archaeology Field School by The University of Haifa International School in Collaboration with Hippos-Sussita Excavation Project
Field Experience, Workshops, Lectures and Guided Tours

The 20th season of excavations at Hippos-Sussita will be happening in July 2019. Our dig is open for students and amateurs from all over the world. Detailed information can be found on our website http://hippos.haifa.ac.il, and in the flyer attached.
We offer a general field school for students, as well as other personalized options of research and collaboration for those interested in practical Classical archaeology.
The ancient city of Hippos, one of the Decapolis, was erected upon the plateau of Sussita Mountain overlooking the Sea of Galilee which stretches west of it. The Hippos dig offers an exciting opportunity in one of the most dramatic sceneries in the region.
The team will lodge in the beautiful Kibbutz Ein-Gev on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.

During the upcoming season we plan on excavating the following areas:

  • The Roman Theater
  • The Roman Sanctuary
  • The Byzantine burnt church
