When we first discussed Hippos/Sussita in the early days of The Book & The Spade, it was a major site waiting to be excavated by archaeologists. Finally, a dozen years ago, the archaeologists arrived. We have been reporting on exciting discoveries at Hippos/Sussita in the last few years.

And now, finally, our chance to talk with an archaeologist who has been working at Hippos/Sussita: prof. Mark Schuler of Concordia University in St. Paul. Prof. Schuler is in charge of the excavations in the NE quadrant of this hilltop city overlooking the Sea of Galilee, including one of the eight Byzantine churches that have been identified in the city.
