Kursi (Gergesa) is a picturesque setting on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee. The site has a rich history. A Byzantine community was established here and it thrived for over two centuries. The story of this community is being written today in the excavations led by Vassilos Tzaferis and Charles R. Page. To learn about these excavations, please follow the links below.
Dr. Charles Page and Dr. Paul McCracken were interviewed by Simcha Jacobovici - better known as "The Naked Archaeologist" - at Kursi for a recent program on The History Channel.
