Bethsaida Excavations Project website

THE AWOL BLOG: Bethsaida Excavations Project. This is an impressive website!

This Bethsaida is the site of et-Tell. Regular readers will be aware that there are two main contenders for the site of the ancient city of Bethsaida near the Sea of Galilee. The other is el-Araj. Both excavations seem confident of their identification and they tend to call their site "Bethsaida" with little qualification. That can be confusing.

For the ongoing controversy over which site is the actual ancient city of Bethsaida, start here and follow the many links.
