Archaeological gardens in Israel

EXHIBITIONS: Post-lockdown field trip? Visit some of Israel’s (320!) archaeological gardens. Free historical sites nationwide, open to the public at all hours, feature Roman-era marble artifacts, ancient sarcophagi, farming implements, Crusader ruins and more (AVIVA AND SHMUEL BAR-AM, Times of Israel).

It may be a while before "post-lockdown," but these sites are certainly worth keeping in mind.

Past posts on archaeological gardens in Israel, including Givat Yeshayahu are here and links. I also noted the Ashkelon exhibition here and the one in the Old City of Jerusalem here.
