Umm el-Qanatir

The village—ancient name not known—was constructed in the fourth or fifth century AD and was destroyed by the devastating earthquake of AD 749.

It boasts one of the best-preserved ancient synagogues in the land—90% of the remains (collapsed) were still in-situ after the earthquake of AD 749.  It is in the process of being reconstructed by Yehoshua Dray and his colleagues.

In addition, remnants of a flax processing installation have been discovered by the spring in the village.
