Twelve seasons of work at Hippos of the Decapolis have exposed a 50 x 65 meter quadrant north of the Decumanus Maximus containing structures from the three main phases of the occupation of Hippos: the House of Tyche--a Roman peristyle house with a garden; the Northeast Church--a small memorial chapel for a revered woman; and an Umayyad meeting hall. The quadrant also demonstrates the decline and intentional abandonment of this part of the city prior to the great earthquake of the mid eighth century CE.
