Caesarea Maritima

Large Roman city and harbor founded by King Herod, that survived through the Islamic and Crusader Middle Ages. The Combined Caesarea Expeditions is also an amphibious project in the exploration of King Herod's temple to Roma and Augustus which was discovered. Still others will work on a dwelling quarter thought to date from King Herod's time, perhaps the home of Caesarea's earliest Jewish and Christian communities.
