Roll up your sleeves and be a part of history for a few hours. The enthusiasm of the staff rubs off and you become an integral part of the continued discovery of the historical origins of the Temple mount. They take you through the history of the old temple, the origin of the rubble being sifted, and how archaeologists inspect and evaluate artifacts. You are given a random pail with rubble, and you rinse off dirt with water on the sifter while inspecting what is unveiled. Among the many artifacts we found, pottery handles and rims, mosaic tiles, bones, old metal, marble pieces, and even a 2014 coin (!), was a rustic brown colored piece of the wall of Harrod's old temple. The staff members were amazing, we had a number of different individuals review our sifting, and each was enthusiastic in their own way. This is unique to no end, you never know what can be uncovered (we even found part of a car bumper!). Make reservations before hand. Excellent for young children who like learning and getting their hands wet and dirty.
