Hirbat Midras (Horbot Midras) was a significant population center in Second Temple times and many scholars believe that it is also the site of the home and grave of the Prophet Zechariah. Some exceptionally well preserved mosaics were uncovered in early 2011. They are now due to be covered until site development can be completed. Here are some pictures that we managed to take before they were again covered.
