On ancient synagogues

BIBLE HISTORY DAILY: Ancient Synagogues in Israel and the Diaspora. What is the meaning of “synagogue” in the Bible? (Megan Sauter). This BHD essay was first published in 2015, but I seem to have missed it then. It introduces a BAR article on the subject by Professor Rachel Hachlili, which is behind the subscription wall.
