Favorite thing: Earthquakes destroyed most of Beit Shean, then called Scythopolis in 749CE. These photos graphically show some of the destruction. Floors upheaved, things tumbling this over that, columns toppled and looking like the local bowling alley of the GODS.

Fondest memory: The last photo shows me at Beit Shean with my partner in travel "crime", my wife Zohara. She is often kind enough to suffer through a day scrambling through ancient ruins, even though she does not enjoy it so much, to let me satisfy my hunger for history.
