This road leads to Sepphoris!

This road leads to Sepphoris! -- The 2005 excavation season at Sepphoris, directed by Prof. Zeev Weiss, exposed yet another section of the decumanus, one of the major thoroughfares leading into Roman and Byzantine Sepphoris. The road is paved with rectangular stone slabs that were preserved almost in their entirety. Several architectural elements partially uncovered on either side of the decumanus suggest that prominent structures probably lined the road leading into the ancient city. The expedition will continue to explore these structures in coming seasons.
