About Us


This website is about Gamla, an ancient Jewish city in Israel just a few miles East of the Sea of Galilee.  The city was destroyed by the Romans in 67 CE and was lost to antiquity until it was discovered in 1968 after Israel captured the Golan Heights in the Six Day War.

This website is run as an educational site by Joe Bartling, a forensic technologist and investigator who has been collecting and studying historical, geographical and archaeological evidence about Gamla and the Northern Galilee area since 2010.  On several visits to Gamla, Joe has taken hundred of photos and dozens of videos capturing this amazing place, captured and preserved in history.

If you would like to contact us, please send us an email to info [at] gamla.org.

You can donate any amount to help us continue our research, visit Gamla, and capture more photographs and video.
