Bethsaida Biblical Archaeology

This project was formed in 1991 to excavate the lost biblical city of Bethsaida, Israel. UNO, the lead institution of a worldwide consortium of universities, holds a license from the Antiquities Authority of Israel to uncover the secrets of Bethsaida. Faculty, staff and hundreds of students from the consortium institutions work at the site. The discoveries and their impact have been presented and analyzed in scholarly journals and have obtained substantial coverage worldwide in the mass media. Bethsaida Biblical Archaeology has helped to establish UNO as a global leader in biblical archaeology.
