Dr. András Végh, archaeologist at the Budapest Historical Museum, shows and explains the remains of the 13th-14th century Jewish residential quarter, its synagogue and ritual bath, which were discovered in the course of two archaeological digs he led on the western side of Szt. György Street in 1998-2000 and in 2004-2005. We then visit the 15th century Jewish quarter and synagogue on Táncsics Mihály Street. The tour is part of Prof. Carsten Wilke's MA seminar "Introduction to Medieval Jewish Civilization".
