This map outlines the political use made of
archaeological sites in Jerusalem’s
Historic Basin.
Clicking on a site on the political map will display
information about the authorities and
organizations managing and operating the site.
Clicking on a historical period on the
timeline will display a map of the archaeological
sites from that period, describing how
the city evolved during each era.
Together, the two layers show the contrast
between Jerusalem’s rich multicultural history
and the mechanisms by which the State of
Israel is narrowing down Jerusalem’s identity
from a city of three faiths to a historic city
dominated by a Jewish narrative.
