Legio VI Ferrata

This summer, the JVRP returns to Legio, the base of the Roman VIth Ferrata Legion, next to the biblical site of Megiddo. Established during the reign of the Emperor Hadrian (117–138 CE). Excavations so far have demonstrated clear ties to major political and cultural events in the formative years of Rabbinic Judaism and Christianity and have provided an incredible new window into the Roman military occupation of the eastern provinces.
