Mt. Scopus

 

Photo above taken in front of the semicircle long tent where volunteers & staff sift buckets of dirt & rescue valuable artifacts of the 4000-year span of the Temple Hill, photographed Summer 2013.)The dirt was dug from underneath the southeast area of the Temple Mt. called "Solomon's Stables". The underground arches that support that end of the 35-acre platform were dug out by Muslims expanding the area below their mosque that is on the top of the Temple Mt; they deposited the dirt in the Kidron Valley. An Israeli archeologist brought it in truck loads to this place where the Kidron Valley transitions to it’s head, Mt. Scopus. "Bulldozer archeology" was used where a toothbrush should have been used, in situ.
