A marvelous mosaic synagogue floor has been discovered at the Israeli excavation site of Horvat Kur. The timeworn stones of the mosaic clearly form the name ‘El’azar’. Leiden University researcher Jürgen Zangenberg and a group of Leiden students played a role in the excavation. ‘El’azar was likely an important inhabitant of the region between the 4th and 7th century.
Congratulations to David Fontijn, who has been recognized by the University with the title of full Professor of the Archaeology of Early Europe.
