Khirbet Wadi Hamam is an archaeological site practically on the outskirts of Hamaam. The site was excavated between 2007-2011 by a team under dig director Uzi Leibner of Hebrew University and yielded the remains of a large Roman Period Jewish village. The village was situated at the foot of Mount Nitai and thus on the ancient road connecting the central Galilee, through Wadi Hamam, with the Sea of Galilee. The most important find is a synagogue with a very interesting and relatively well-preserved mosaic floor. The fortifications atop Mount Nitai, which is a nature reserve and off limits for visitors, have also been surveyed and partially excavated with the purpose of dating them and placing them in a historical context.
