Ashkelon Archaeological Park

Ashkelon Archaeological Park

This is how Ashkelon Archealogical Park looks before archaeologist start digging. To look at it like this one would not think that under that dirt are layer upon layer of cities named Ashkelon.

The fenced area is where we were digging. What treasurers of knowledge lie under that dirt?

The park was divided into 100 grids with only a few grids being excavated to the bottom. Most of the park will be left untouched.


  1. Amazing how something that looks so ordinary can hold so much history underneath. It's always an adventure. Archaeology I mean.
