The Roman Temple Complex at Horvat Omrit

An Interim Report

J. Andrew Overman and Daniel N. Schowalter


This volume details the excavation of a Roman temple complex in northern Galilee. The site is known as Omrit, although the origin of the name is uncertain. Found between the Druze holy site of Nebi Yehuda and the well-known hill, Tel Azaziyat, the Omrittemple is a remarkable discovery. The temple foundations are very-well preserved and many of the original architectural features are still on the site. Along with on-going excavations and preservation of the site, the long-range plans for the expedition include a partial reconstruction of the temple. The finds, data, history of the excavations, and the architectural complexity of the temple are presented in this volume in the form of an interim report.
