  • BYU Ancient Near Eastern Studies students spent four weeks in the ancient village of Huqoq, Jerusalem, working on archaeological excavations. The students visited historical sites, received expert advice through hands-on experience and aided in the discovery of two rows of mosaic tiles. The mosaics depict scripture-related stories and principles, including spies being sent to Canaan by Moses, and a child leading an animal with a rope leash, with an inscripted phrase from Isaiah 11:6, “A little child shall lead them.”
