I managed to identify Elephantine for When on Google Earth 86 over at AWBG. So without further ado, here’s the 87th edition of WOGE:
Here are the rules:
Q: What is When on Google Earth? A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!
Q: How do you play it? A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.
Q: Who wins? A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.
Q: What does the winner get? A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!
Be the first to correctly identify the site below and its major period of occupation in the comments below and you can host your own!
Sorry, no, Dorothy. At least as far as I know, this is the first archaeological site from this particular country to feature on WOGE….
It is the Roman temple at Niha Bekaa, Lebanon. [lower great temple] C2-3AD perhaps.
Geoff, you win! Congrats! Although there’s actually 2 temples in the photo.
I assumed it was a church at first !
