Tar Heels at Huqoq

VOLUNTEER REPORT: UNC students participate in successful dig at an ancient synagogue. (Reagan Allen, The Daily Tar Heel).
While some students took on internships or indulged in travels this summer, 11 students and specialists from UNC participated in a dig at an ancient Jewish synagogue in Israel.

The group unearthed mosaics almost 1,600 years old in a synagogue at Huqoq, a village in Lower Galilee.
