    When in Jerusalem we were told you MUST do something archaeological. This is not a dig...you stand under a shaded canopy the entire time (very important in hot months), you do none of the manual labor as with other experiences (a bonus I think), and you sift through buckets of material excavated form a specific site (not random sites, you’re explained where from). This experience is made all the better by a delightful archaeologist Frankie who will work with you and teach you how to identify rocks from valued historical pieces…after more than 10 years in this job she still exudes passion. What’s more, they opened up a new session just for us to accommodate. This is the archaeological experience to go for ... all the education and “fun of the lottery” trying to find that one rare piece, without spilling you blood sweat and tears for it. I’d go back there for sure!

    The trail starts on the way to the Mormon University going down steps, continues past a school and cross a road on a trail within sight of the old city wall and El Aksa, and climbs a bit and goes to a second road, where I abandon the trail and walk up to the old city wall. If one continues along the wall one reaches the light rail.
