One of the interesting types of items in my Grandma’s Scrapbooks that I haven’t shared much of yet are clippings about Archaeology. I have several of them that I plan on sharing someday.
Here is an interesting headline: Biblical Parts to Get Study: Sunken Cities Goal of 1957 Expedition
In the article it talks about American archeologist Edwin Link and his survey of the Mediterranean Coast and his plans to return for more research.
This section covers information about Caesarea Maritima. Edward Link uncovered some of the initial ruins in the sea at this site.
I took this picture of a model at Caesarea Maritima that show where some of the underground ruins have been found since that time. You can easily see the outline of Sebastos Harbor in the model.
A lot of exploration and study has been done since 1957 and today Caesarea Maritima even has an underwater museum consisting of trails that can be followed by divers to look at the ruins.
Caesarea Maritima will always hold a special place in my memory as it was the first site that we visited during my trip to Israel. You can read more about that first full day of the trip in my post: Sea to Sea
You can also see more pictures from Casesarea Maritima in my posts Where is This? and Felix and Drusilla.
