Lod Mosaic Excavation and Conservation Video

A behind the scenes peek at the ancient Roman Mosaic from Lod Israel, now on view in Chicago at the Field Museum. See this massive undertaking in action as a portion of the pavement is prepared to tour the US. This video gives a look at the excavation site and lifting and conserving the sections. It is the largest and most beautiful mosaic ever discovered in Israel. 5 minutes, produced by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

  1. What an amazing find! I recall seeing this exhibit at the Met a while back, and watching the video (though couldn’t hear it in the museum very well). It’s fascinating and one wonders what other works are waiting to be uncovered!
