Professor J. Andrew (Andy) Overman from Macalester College explaining the Omrit historic site exhibit in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem - The ancient Roman site of Omrit (also known as Horbat Omrit) sits atop a foothill of Mount Hermon. After a brushfire cleared the area in 1998, excavations led by Macalester College have been taking place with assistance from nearby Kfar Szold. The region was well trodden by Roman influence, and thus far excavations have yielded three phases of temple construction approximated at mid-1st century BCE, 20 BCE and 1st century CE.
