This volume concerns the excavations at ancient Sepphoris, Israel, from 1983 to 1987. It contains a detailed report on the history of the site from ancient literary sources, a history of excavations and investigations, a report of the excavations against the tower ("the Citadel"), a report of other 5 x 5 m. probes near the Citadel, and eight 5 x 5 meter areas excavated in a building called a "church" or "basilica" in 1931, but now known to be a villa. The narrative incorporates details of small finds, coins, and pottery, with pottery drawings and architectural and stratigraphic drawings.The usefulness of the book is in reporting the archaeological data and integrating the archaeology into the ancient history of the city and of Galilee, of ancient Judaism, and of ancient Christianity.
