When the dug down, the workers uncovered the remains of ancient buildings. Since then, over 400 buildings have been torn down, and excavations have been ongoing since 1931, with a small interruption for WWII. The excavtions have been conducted by the American School of Classical Studies, and were initially funded by John J. Rockerfeller.
