The archaeological digging project on Givat Titora will be open to residents and volunteers from April 22 until June 7. The project to introduce the public to the archaeology within the city began in November and stopped for the winter. The Israel Antiquities Authority and the Iriyah encourage residents of the city and surrounding areas to participate. Students from schools around the city are participating in the project. The excavations, which have been conducted so far, have yielded impressive results with volunteers uncovering the foundations of a Roman fortress built to the north and west of the citadel.
The fortress's affiliation with the Roman period attests to a very important settlement that existed on the hill some two thousand years ago.
