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.
