dig Issue Summary

Jerusalem, Tales of the Ancient Holy City (March / April 2003)

Some ancient cities were simple complexes and their remains tell of a particular time period and a particular people. Other cities have a very complex history. One such city is Jerusalem. Join us as we travel about the Old City with archaeologists whose finds are a window on the past of many civilizations. Find out just what the phrase "Old City" means and who lives there now. Dig through a few areas to uncover what the finds are revealing about those who lived here and those who ruled here. Then read how old records are key to understanding areas where digging is not possible. Don't miss a chance to "excavate" one of the world's key cities - past and present.

See our Teacher's / Parent's Guide for this issue!

Correction! The answer to the "Digging Jerusalem" puzzle on page 15 is B.
