An image looking north towards "Area C."  Area C is about 100 yards north of Area A and there the remains of a private house from the Roman Period were uncovered. Finds from the house dated from the first to the third centuries CE included pottery, coins, fishing net weights, and a cooking oven. 

Additional studies indicate that there are many houses buried under the erosion of the delta of the Jordan River.  This indicates that the el-Araj (Bethsaida/Julias) was a good size city (polis).

For brief reports on each of the four seasons of excavations see the official Press Releases.
