In 1996 construction of a road in the Israeli town of Lod unearthed a magnificent Roman mosaic floor. This volume reports on archaeologists’ first explorations at the site and subsequent excavations – including discovery of three more mosaics – in 2009 and 2014. The authors also trace the history of the ancient city, describe the Late Roman house where the mosaics were found, interpret the scenes they contain and present photographs of the fine depictions of a range of exotic animals.
