Studio Sztulman-Kessel Jerusalem

Moving day. After the archaeological team made meticulous drawings of every stone in the ninth- to eighth-century B.C.E. pillared building and four-room house, the boulders were hauled across the tell to a more convenient location (seen here), where the buildings were carefully reconstructed. This innovative move allowed the Hazor excavators to dig deeper in the area where the buildings once stood while restoring the upper structures for tourists.
