Archaeology and History
The Galilee Boat is one of the most meaningful archaeological treasures in the world.
Discovered mired in the mud on the Sea of Galilees shore, scholars say this two-millennia-old vessel was a combined ferry and fishing boat, and may have been used by Jews in a sea battle against the Romans.
For Christians, it powerfully recalls the stories of Jesus and his fishermen disciples.
After complex restoration, the Galilee Boat is now the centerpiece of a superb indoor display at the Yigal Alon Center at Kibbutz Ginnosar on the Sea of Galilee.
