Caesarea was the capital of the Land of Israel for over six centuries. King Herod’s brilliant idea to build a port and city that could serve the hundreds of ships that delivered grain from Alexandria to Rome turned Caesarea into the bustling economic engine of the country. Most of the ancient site has not been excavated. Its houses and streets are buried in the sands and under the fields and houses of Kibbutz Sdot Yam and modern Caesarea. However, its main buildings and much more were excavated and researched for the past 73 years. The ERETZ issue on Caesarea will include a magazine, an extended visitors’ guide, and a chronological map. The limited-edition issue will be published at the beginning of July. Now is the time to order your copy and be among the first to receive ERETZ Magazines Caesarea Queen of the Sea.
