We met up with our guide, Farah, and toured the ruins of Caesarea Maritima. Herod the Great built this city and port in the first century BC. The Muslims destroyed it in the thirteenth century to prevent crusaders from returning and using it again.
Farah explains Roman toilets, which are those slits directly behind him!
Bill Duffert tries to control his umbrella on this damp and windy morning.
Here Farah explains that the Byzantines built a theater in the Roman hippodrome (behind) to prevent gladiatorial games from taking place.
Caesarea Maritima is where St Paul baptized Cornelius, and where he successfully defended himself before the governors and King Agrippa.
