Courtyard of Peter’s House



Archaeology has revealed, not only the remains of the Capernaum Harbour, but also what is interpreted as Peter’s House.  It had an outer courtyard along the harbour road and we imagine Peter’s boat moored alongside his house. In the courtyard we see two men under an awning mending their nets, women preparing food and baking it in an oven, and a stall where fish was sold. On the roof are two stands for the drying of fish.
