Take a walk through the ancient Israelite city of Arad, try and imagine what it was like to live here 10 centuries before the birth of Christ... On the western wall and under it you will find the water system, the channels and cisterns that would supply water from the little rainfall in the desert.
In the first picture you see us standing at the eastern main gate giving access to the fortress.
In the second picture Katrin, Nathalie and Rob pose on the alter of the Holy of Holies.
The third shows Nathalie on the sacraficial altar....don't get any ideas...
The last shows some of the people working there at Tel-Arad.
