The peaceful valley, where olive trees are planted, overlooks Hebrew University. To visitors, it may seem like an additional Jerusalem landscape, but those in the know, can tell that this is the place where treasures are uncovered!
Since 2004, the site operates a significant and unique archaeological sifting project. Archaeological rubble from various excavation sites is brought to the Emek Zurim Valley, and using sifting apparatuses and water, the remaining dirt is removed, revealing artifacts hidden in the rubble.
In this way, it is possible to uncover rare items, and fascinating findings, which could have been accidentally thrown away. This project also enables anyone to be an “archaeologist for a day” and assist in uncovering genuine artifacts. Of course, every visitor has the opportunity to discover a rare and interesting find themselves.
