Below is Area A of the excavation with staff and volunteers at the end of the 2019 season. The volunteers are forming the outline of the Byzantine church. The 6 people in the center represent the known or anticipated position of the stone bases upon which the church columns once stood. This area will continue to be exposed in the 2021 season.
